Amoeba Review

02/17/2014

This release from electronic artist Pye Corner Audio collects all four volumes of the Black Mill Tape Series, from his first two official releases as an artist to 3 & 4, released just this year. Together they create an all-encompassing analog soundscape, moving with the kind of synthesizers and beats that propelled the film Drive, echoing a nostalgia for some lost era that maybe never happened. Early house beats blend beautifully with light tape hiss and muffled, faraway synth strings on headier tracks, while others pound percolating tones and heavy bass into your skull, like some robotic dance decree. Fans of Boards of Canada, ’70s sci-fi soundtracks and Pye Corner Audio’s other remarkable work should be in heaven here with so much material to pore through. The complete Black Mill Tapes is really an embarrassment of riches.
