Mark Harwood I A Perfect Punctual Paradise Under My Own Name LP
A Perfect Punctual Paradise Under My Own Name
Makes me think of an imaginary Arte documentary about Boyd Rice's childhood. No idea why i do think this but this is a record which makes me as uncomfortable as i was hearing Non for the first time. Cut-ups mixed with field recordings, dark soundscapes all plastered with some wittiness which makes it fun as well. A treasure is slowly unfolding.
"Proper heavy-as-your-life blinder this; Penultimate Press caretaker Mark Harwood stages a midlife existential crisis on vinyl with a rawly penetrating mix of vulnerable candour and oblique mundanity riddled in its unpredictable transitions of field recordings and f*ck knows wot. It’s difficult, paranoid, but somehow deeply empathetic and uncannily also one of the most acute articulations of lockdown mindsets that we’ve heard. Don’t sleep. RIYL Graham Lambkin obvs – Boomkat"
