'"...this ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no foolin' around..." Talking Heads, from Fear Of Music.

'This ain't no fooling around, indeed! Infraction Records' second disk is the debut of Andrew Liles, an Englishman who has brought back notice of another world to our ears, an un world. Thin and wispy, disturbing and dissonant, the music Liles has recorded sketches out a multitude of unearthly visions, all heavily processed, eerie and electronic but avoiding all cliches to date. This is original, surprising music and is not the least bit derivative, at least to my ears.

'The disk starts with a jarring intro that could easily come from the soundtrack of an ax murder with you as the surprised guest. Surprise! Then, the music skates between lush analog and harsh digital confetti to find a home on the borderland of smooth and fractured sounds. Two note
loops provide the sole backdrop on several cuts while electronic voices and samples pop up elsewhere, including either harshly processed rain or frying, I can't tell which. Voices speak and we feel their urgency but we can't
understand them. Noises, tones and voices come and go.

'The main operative word, my primary reaction, is summed up by the word "eerie" with enough "disturbing" added to the mix which keeps this well away from the term "new age". No, this is mature, adult music so put the kiddies to bed. And this is not sleepy music, this demands attention on almost every other cut but rewards attention on all of them.

'This is the sort of disk you might not "like" right away but find yourself playing again and again. Liles has brewed some primordial stuff here that some will need badly in this mediocre age. I don't recommend headphones on
your first listen but I do recommend a listen. Liles has said a lot here with, I understand, more to come.

'Just be careful with that axe, Andrew. '
