Frequently the greatest talents emerge from the unlikeliest of sources. In the case of Khonnor, that talent comes from a seventeen year-old who has been no stranger to the courtroom in recent years. That he has managed to craft one of the most original debut albums of this century between homework and teenage angst is remarkable. 'Handwriting' doesn't sound like much else around at the moment; there are certainly shades of the shifting sonic patterns of Vladislav Delay or A.R.Kane's otherwordly pop music but it could represent a new era for electronic music altogether. Khonnor is a highly effective vocalist too; the cheap microphone he uses actually lending his delivery a cracked-up, dreamy quality. The highlights are numerous; a gorgeous melody like 'Dusty', 'Crapstone' is what M83 might sound like if they ever discovered subtlety and the curiously wonderful 'The Stoned Night' sounds like it was beamed in from outer space. Frankly, it's quite frightening to think how good this young man will become.
