Buzzes, crackles, squelches and bleeps. These are just some of the noises emanating from the debut EP from Angle, a duo made up of Englishman Andrew Richards and Frenchman Sylvain Closier. Clearly constructed from the same mould that brought us electronica/post-rock luminaries like Hood and Tarwater - with whom Angle compare very favourably - the twosome nonetheless hit on their own highly fertile style featuring Richards' frail, naive vocals and modern electronic beats. Covering the Pixies 'Debaser' is a brave move but it's deconstructed to a melancholic, low-speed number that has its own unique charm. The same can be said for their own work; 'Sugarhorse' and the title track are sad and fragile, demonstrating that in order to cut it long term in their genre they need to convey emotions as well as being able to master the technology. Silence may well be better than nothing but - on a more positive note - this kind of music is instantly preferrable to silence.
