Beaucoup Fishy Techno
Avery gives us an album of tracks that already sounds like a craftily sequenced mix, as if he knows you will want to put this on when getting ready to go out. Actually, it can sound like he asked a lot of questions firsthand: - like "How can I make it techno that your average Joe could like as much as trance"?; "What about some sexy female robotic speak - they'll love that!" A difficult electronics album it is not - in fact, on opener "Water Jump" it sounds bland. Then the sequencing kicks in, and we're off... Underworld should sue - more than one track sounds like "Rez" ("Drone Logic" in particularly). By the end he goes for blessed out indie. Gotta say, he does it all very well. I also like his remix of Factory Floor's "How You Say", also available here - and perhaps more inventive.
