CONQUERING ANIMAL SOUND
Conquering Animal Sound are the Glasgow based duo of Anneke Kampman and James Scott. The pair starting making music in late 2008, messing around with toy instruments and loop pedals, and a sense of playfulness has remained through to their recently released debut album, “Kammerspiel” (Gizeh Records). CAS collect sounds both musical and non-musical from a vast array of sources and fashion them into rich, organic and textured arrangements, pinned down by undulating beats that riff on the synthetic nature of drum programming. On top of this are layers of Anneke’s sweet and perplexing, crystalline Northern European vocals. Comparisons with the work of Björk are kind of obvious but pretty close to the mark, and there is much in common with folks like Hanne Hukkelberg, Grouper, Hot Chip and Múm.
Haunted underwater glitchstep from Cambridge. Burial meets David Lynch meets “Let’s Dance” meets Sega Megadrive.
