Amoeba Review

05/12/2016

It's hard to pin Mark Pritchard down. Techno party master; experimental ambient composer; electronic exotica; Pritchard's works (often under various pseudonyms) are so incredibly expansive that they can only could come from the era of obsessive record collectors and MP3 hoarders that know that history of recorded sound. Under The Sun, Pritchard's third album for Warp, drops the footwork and jungle sound of his previous singles and EPs, getting simultaneously more precise and clean while dropping the barriers of dance music. His tracks no longer feel like another jam waiting to get blasted loud in a late night warehouse party. They feel more at place in your home with a hot drink or an evening stroll with a cold breeze blowing. "Beautiful People" features Radiohead's Thom Yorke whose voice is at its most delicate among the Moondog-esque drum sample and the ambient textures that together sound absolutely heavenly. The titular track "Under The Sun," with its pop vocal sample, feels more in touch with the world of Brainfeeder's Flying Lotus as the quietest bass drum loop is repeated over the music, echoing and reverberating until it's just spectral ear candy. The yin to the yang of Mark Prichard's previous works, Under the Sun feels like the good vibes and drunk/drugged memories of his electronic dance days have taken a major step back for music that's more contemplative, meditative, and ethereal. No other album this Spring is as hauntingly beautiful.
