""I don't want to be too negative," Physical Therapy recently told The Fader, "but I will say that people spend a little too much time focusing on trying to invent these imaginary scenes and micro-genres and trends instead of taking the music a little more at face value." Listen to "Safety Net," an uncommonly sprawling 20-minute EP for the ever-interesting Hippos In Tanks label, and you'll see why folks might be looking for something to latch onto: from rumbling hardcore to chugging downtempo experiments to what might once have been called electronica, the Leonia, New Jersey-based producer grabs from more bags simultaneously than you'd think he has hands for. But Physical Therapy makes a good point about "face value": when you take a step back, soften your gaze and unfix all the pegs your brain immediately wants to stick in his sound, you'll find yourself swept away by surprisingly beautiful music."
