Tiny Mix Tapes

Huerco S. claimed he wanted to make something timeless. Both genuinely and emblematically, he’s done just that.

These are gorgeous tracks -- their synthwork is overwhelmingly shiny, but it’s curtained by the antique dust of lo-fi.

Pitchfork

Part of the album's magic is the way that Huerco S., after the fashion of William Basinski’s The Disintegration Loops, has captured a feeling of fragility, of things flaking to dust before our very eyes and ears.

Dejando ese ambient-tecno; Huerco S. evoluciona en la técnica de canciones abrazadoras y tibias, rescatando pizcas de autores como Tim Hecker, y la melodía desintegrada de William Basinki, para conformar estelas de neblina, en un tiempo lento y estacionario. El disco crece casi involuntariamente, y termina en algo mucho más claro, con mejores imágenes, y es de esos pocos materiales que se desarrollan en uno mismo, en su misma acción, ya que eso que ... read more
