We’ve long been fans of Toronto‘s Cheldon Paterson aka SlowPitchSound, celebrated sci-fi turntablist and outer solar system sonic explorer. Over the years he’s certainly shown us many wonders, but on his fifth full-length album THK SKN, he takes us on a voyage through realms uncharted.
A score for an imaginary film, THK SKN is full of subtly crafted soundscapes that create a mood rather than jump out at you, flipping nonchalantly from idea to idea with ease, and never neglecting the flow. It even includes one absolutely transcendent pop/R&B single, appearing in the middle of side one and featuring an incredible vocal turn by Shikha Sehgal. But to discover every nook and cranny of this record, you’ll need to listen many times. THK SKN is an imaginary film well worth returning to, over and over.
THK SKN is available now from Bandcamp.
