False Ponds (My Dance The Skull 2010)

by Tom White



Originally released by My Dance The Skull as a C20 Cassette in 2010.

”Tom Whites latest cassette tape release for My Dance The Skull titled False Ponds more than lives up to this young artists already formidable output. White creates the type of music that intersects noise, dissonance and isolationist angst. Summoning Ballardian imagery throughout, the two sides of this immensely addictive release employ’s lo-fi tape loops, field recordings, guitar fragments and feedback in what is a deeply unique and personal auditory mosaic.

False Ponds is a record that continually evokes and alludes to the subtle process of listening and memory, both personal and collective. From the loops of a child’s voice to the static washes that ebb and flow throughout, this is music that conjures apparitions from forgotten times and places, from obsolete technologies and the hands that once operated them – once locked into these worlds you’ll find it difficult to escape.”
