Plonk cover



Brian Leeds has been away from the Huerco S. name for long enough that his return actually feels like one. A lot of the pleasant murk has cleared up and made space for a front-facing, no haze kind of detail spinning. Leeds hangs keyboard and dulcimer patterns out in the air and then kicks off waves of hacked keyboard pads. Signals tumble through echo chains and come to a stop amidst long stretches of vapor. This is on the well-lit end of the street that the sound wranglers live on now, sandwiched between Max/MSP and lots of Eurorack modules. There’s rapping? There is. Sometimes this sounds a bit like Actress with the fuzz combed off or Autechre with fewer head-whipping drops.
