Shankles – Gully Foil EP (7 track free download)

a variety of alternative electronic influences, from Four Tet to Clark to Nostalgia 77 to Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and beyond are amongst the influences here. Shankles combines sinister with uplifting in a mix of twisted samples and dark breaks. i noticed on track 4, Branches, a sample of Sycamore Trees by Jimmy Scott from the David Lynch film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.  the way Shankles shifts from delicate build-ups into claustrophobic crescendos is perfectly orchestrated. it’s a great first release

the Gully Foil EP is out now on Jus Like Music and can be heard below and/or downloaded for free
