2006 release. The Preservation label presents the self-titled debut album from Melbourne's Post. Post is the solo guise of James Wilkinson, who has gleefully cracked the ground between free jazz and punk in Bucketrider and made sonic cinema with the electro-dub-hip-hop fusion of High Pass Filter. He's also provided innovative sound design for the internationally-acclaimed puppet theater company Snuff Puppets, and it's his adventurous spirit that runs free through Post's pop persona. Post's playful but stirring sense of composition makes for a set where bouncy dancefloor-bound fun, retro-futurist funk, space-y jazz noir and ambient atmospheres face-off at fizzing tangents. Strings, guitars, recorders and piano on the album were recorded at David Bridie's studio The Enormodome, with further creating, recording and mixing taking place at Wilkinson's own Wilkinsound studio. The final mixes were done with François Tétaz, who has worked on remixes for Aphex Twin and composed the soundtrack for Australian film Wolf Creek (2005). The array of collaborators also includes renowned experimenters Anthony Pateras (piano), Robin Fox (electronics) and drummer Steve Heather (drums). For all its smarts, Post is the sound of a man in love with the worlds of sonics and song, and therein lies its warm, immediate appeal. Limited edition special package design.
