“The first side of “Fractures” is by Problems That Fix Themselves and it’s very much in the vein of a Richard D. James mini-masterpiece. I don’t really know the correct language to use when describing this stuff, but I can say that Problems’ music is quite complex and utilizes a number of interesting rhythms and textures. Hey now, they even named one track after Jeffery Tambor.
The B side is by Micromelancolié and it’s a lot more slow building, sounding like a room slowly filling with bees transitioning into the dead sound of a record spinning endlessly in its runout groove. Not as instantly ear grabbing as the Problems material, but It’s a good match to the energetic workout you get on the other side.”
