"Alternately absurd and acutely real, these five songs from the enigmatic Cambridge-based Um are propelled by off-kilter, charity shop grooves, sampled loops and post-digital crunches and hums. His style is short, darkly humourous tales that are frequently eccentric and often touching. Something like the lovechild of Solex and Felix Kubin, sent back in time to an English school to hide their shame, he has developed a means of encoding his anxieties about life thus far in audio form, presented here for you to decipher. So get yourself a copy." (label info)
