LOW STOCK LEVEL
"Debut album by futurist dub pop duo Standish/Carlyon, comprising bassist/vocalist Conrad Standish and guitarist Tom Carlyon, both formerly of noir rock group Devastations. Here, they've moved away from full-band arrangements towards submerged electronic rhythms and late-night altered states. The atmosphere throughout is one of surreal chic. In rich baritone or impressive falsetto, Standish intones dark, absurdist lyrics over the band's shimmering take on dub, a sensual, ultramodern gloss disturbed by deep vibrations. Features guest spots from members of Htrk, Blanck Mass, and Fuck Buttons."
