Artist: JAYCOCK, DAVID A.
Label: Blackest Rainbow
|"Debut vinyl LP from Manchesters David A. Jaycock (who is also a member of Big Eye Family Players), David had a 7" on the excellent Great Pop Supplement and Presets follows on from that fine release. Presets features 12 tracks of melancholic folk almost entirely performed by David on a variety of instruments, and its a real step forward to darker areas than his previous releases on Great Pop Supplement, Early Winter Recordings and The Red Deer Club. The record retains some of the more haunting vocal and guitar moments from aforementioned excursions, and at times is comparable to Ben Chasnys Six Organs of Admittance, but it has a much stranger and hard to place approach and sound, with some fantastic dark creepy tracks, blurring creaking, clunking objects with something that sounds like guitar, transformed into something far more sinister... but somehow at the same time retains a feeling that everything isnt quite as bleak as it seems. Edition of 250 with pro printed sleeves. Pressed on virgin vinyl." -Blackest Rainbow|
