Charlatan :: Local Agent (Umor Rex)

Fractured analog sounds joined by a myriad of abstract low-end squeaks and somewhat controlled synths.

Brad Rose—known for his work as Digitalis label-head—moves ahead with Local Agent for Umor Rex and unveils leftfield technoid slabs and processed noise for abstract dub enthusiasts to consume. “Blur Suit” and “Nightmaring” both exude bubbling modular activity and low rumbling glitches, bleeps and humming machines placed in a muddy burrow. “Lonely City” sheds s few micro-melodies among crackling light tones as “Skulled” slithers about with further analog/synth fizz beauty, deformed experimental dub and fluttering sci-fi squabbles. “The Cure” manages to unleash a fibrous slurry made from tangled wires getting to know each other over time as corrosive and muffled electronics slide in the background. In all, Local Agent doesn’t venture too far into new terrain and instead places emphasis on fractured analog sounds joined by a myriad of abstract low-end squeaks and somewhat controlled synths.

Similar to the Triangles release (Digitalis, 2011), Local Agent is available as a limited edition of 300 copies, pressed on yellow transparent colored vinyl. Packaged in uncoated stock jackets with a double sided insert, black inner polylined sleeve, and free download.

Local Agent is available on Umor Rex.
