Chaines – The King [Slip]


You have to wonder when someone describes an album, or anything for that matter, as simply “interesting.” And what we have here from Mancheser U.K. based artist Chaines is very interesting. No off-the-shelf hits or instant bangers, but rather a masterful orchestration of unrelated elements. Pulses of techno, ambient tapestries, sparkling vocal samples, dropped pianos, total distortion, doom— it’s difficult to describe what this is, exactly. As engrossing as it is haunting. Play it again.
