Scott I'm still just as captivated by this record now as I was when it was new (4 years ago). It has a wonderful emotional quality that reminds me to a degree of Black Tape for a Blue Girl. (edit: I suggested to Sam that he call her the next time he needs a cellist; he reminded me she played on "The Scavenger Bride" way back in '02!) "The Leopard" is a favorite song here, and "Terrain" reminds me somewhat of early In The Nursery. Solid from start to finish. Favorite track: Flag of No Country.

about

As the title suggests, Asperities is a record born of conflict: internal, personal and global. Universal themes. The build of pressure and the threat of violent release.
Utilising looped cello, electronics and found sounds, Kent creates a world where the technological and the organic merge in perfect symbiosis, the layers of sound peeling back to reveal a beating, bloody human heart at its centre.
