Splintered Perfume Garden Of Infinite Time
Errol Hoffman is back! I had the pleasure of having him perform as Perfume Garden the fourth and final (for now...) Campfire Tales series of small intimate shows at The End a couple of years ago - his subtle modulated synth bleeds blew my mind. He has just released Splintered Time through Feral Media, a seven track narcotic sojourn into the synthetic twilight of Blade Runner soundscapes - and I think it's brilliant. The augmented drones, reedy wavering synths, the rising baritone effects, gives an aural equivalent to looking at futuristic night skies through soft lens. Vangelis for the apocalyptic desert; a drug induced dreamscape both sinister and ethereal. As I said - brilliant.
