[a]pendics.shuffle seems to have his fingers in every pie – singer, guitar player, producer with quite a number of pseudonyms – these are only some of the aspects that describe the musical way the American went since the 1990s. During the last decade the Berlin label Mo’s Ferry has been a welcome refuge for him to stop by, now with his fourth release in the baggage. The a-side ‚I See The Morning Time‘ is only the beginning, but already marks the centerpiece of this release. A track full of contrast that combines an oppressive and tense calmness with a pleasant contaminated space-atmosphere. Although stacking different melody-elements, [a]pendics.shuffle never overloads the track. Every single element has its right to exist and gets along well with its fellows. Instead of a trivial mash of ideas it is an interesting mixture with some subtle but exciting moments. Jeremy P. Caulfield (DumbUnit) catches the vibe and transforms the track’s essence on a different level with his ‚Dark Hole Sun‘ remix. He adds his personal melody-element but reduces the overall density of sounds. It almost feels like both producers spent some time together in the same studio to create a two piece science-fiction epos. The record comes to an end with ‚Strung Doll‘, a complex textured track with a darker sound design. Anyway the listener is left screaming for more!
