Brooklyn’s rawmean shares with us, here, an extension of/companion to his brilliant late 2015 full length “Tutulemma” ( mjmjrecords.bandcamp.com/album/tutulemma ), in the form of a seamless, rousing three-track set, titled… “Lemma.” Loops build (upon) harmonies, rhythms, and… go go go! – the supposed boundaries of his own brands of minimal psych-funk, danceteria drive, and sciencewave sophisti-synthery are broken, in barely 14½ minutes. Powerflow.
On the obverse, S/H/A/R/R/P/S (Jessy Kendall, of Lewiston, Maine) and Ragged Lines (me, of here) ‘pseudo collaborate,’ heading/shattering in different – many – directions. A mirage collage of caustic hot takes, the foundation of “Thought Processions” scrapes the surface of territory similar to rawmean’s, though with undeniably/unavoidably alternate results – spurts of synth-gaze glaze, hip ‘n’ hopped-up beats, found sound, and… discretion, chill-advised.
