CD Review: Grass Cut

Artist: Grass Cut

Album: Muppet

Label: Ninja Tune

Rating: 4

Since making their live debut at Brighton’s Loop Festival in late 2008, Grasscut’s Andrew Phillips and Marcus O’Dair have been working on various side projects including their latest release, Muppet. Phillips – known for his work with One Giant Leap and Lo Recordings – and music journalist/radio DJ O’Dair offer a stylistic take on modern classical blended with experimental electronic.

In addition to working on various side projects, the two also performed audio-visual sets at Tate Britain early last year as a part of the Late at Tate exhibitions.

In their Ninja Tune debut, Grasscut mixes dynamic overtones with syncopated beats and ghostly refrains to craft Muppet’s organically anamorphic sound. Drawing from their past side projects, the pair successfully takes the ambient/experimental electronic genre to a mega diff level.

Give these tracks a listen: “Muppet (Nathan Fake mix)”

For Fans of: Daedelus
