Gully downbeat project from Pessimist’s dank corner of the dance, featuring guest input by Justin K Broadrick, Taylor E Burch (DVA Damas, ToC), and Karim Maas.
Following the line of Pessimist’s crackshot album with Karim Maas and more recently the ‘All Hope Lost’ 12” for Berceuse Heroique, ‘Too Long’ keeps it sluggishly slow and swaggering in a cold vein of illbient hip hop and dark Bristol trip hop moods. Yet again we find ourselves hailing comparison with Tricky’s rude templates as much as Scorn and Kaman Leung, especially in the somnolent lurch of ‘No Garden’ featuring the gloaming presence of mutual spirit JK Broadrick, while DVA Damas’ Taylor E Burch lends a wickedly prowling, feline vocal to the set’s most “up” cut ‘Advertised,’ and we can rely on UVB-76 Music’s Karim Maas to turn it nasty in the screwed D&B pressure of ‘Society.’ Make sure to check ‘Madureira’ and the furtive skulk of ‘Believe In Me’ for a sort of back alley variant adjacent to early ‘90s street soul and trip hop.
