'UnAbleTo', David Thomas Broughton's first effort since 2011's Outbreeding, blends his distinctively rich baritone and folk sensibilities with cut up dance beats and harsh noise loops, making an album completely different from anything that's come before.
A jumble of electronic samples, feedback mishaps and manipulations, mixed with folk songs. All played into the pin mic of a Macbook, colliding on Ableton Live in haphazard and randomised arrangements. A study in seeing what happens. Loops phase, falling in and falling out, locking into ambient sprawl or cutting into manipulated noise.
The lush and strange first single is "Problems", which is as much folk-pop genius as it is a propaganda piece for a new - as yet, unknown and undefined - type of faith. youtu.be/bRsAfPjdg4E
