The second release on Extrapolation Records follows Brandon Vare's 'Powerline' EP from 2017, and is an altogether mellower proposition than the label's debut outing, though still impressively assured and beautifully presented. Some words from the label folks themselves:
‘Extrapolation Records are proud to present the first record by Joe Herrick, ‘Dream Reading’. Comprising of 14 tracks from a vast archive of his material we’ve been listening to for the last 5 years, the album moves from ambient soundscapes to off kilter hip hop and house, all held together by Herrick's individual use of looping and samples.
Euphoric, psychedelic, paranoid, rugged, claustrophobic all at once, the dream scenarios throughout include a variety of daily work events, journeys to different locations, family matters, sex acts, and encounters with other human individuals, animals, and deities.’
Highly recommended for fans of early Brainfeeder, Actress, or perhaps some of Pepe Bradock's woozier moments.
