Miles Perhower and Miss Halliwell - iDEAs TriumpH EP
"This is what you've all been waiting for: the ultimate potential commercial breakthrough EP from me and my beautiful band." So begins the latest communication from Miles Perhower, spat out into the inter-ether and accompanying quite possibly the band's least commercial work to date. That's obviously the point. Neither Miles nor his glorious band of messy men and women conform to our expectations and this latest EP, a series of twisted brain frying sonic experiments upon which Perhower rambles on, savant like, ain't about to change that. it's not until the last track, Hypaorig, that things drift back to planet earth but even then, beneath the glitchily cool beats, there's an ominous droning gnawing away at the senses like a rat on a cadaver.
The body of work (a wanky phrase I know but it serves a purpose) that's flowing out of Miles and co right now is frankly astonishing and if this uncompromising but fascinating musical missive wins them just a handful of discerning new fans, hell, that would be the biggest triumph of all.
