Frog Pocket: Gongolot
Buy! - (Planet Mu)
This is the debut album from this Scottish artist, real name John Charles Wilson. Released on Planet Mu Records, which is run by Mike Paradinas, AKA Mu-Ziq, it should not come as a big surprise that some of it sounds an awful lot like Mu-Ziq. But that’s not a bad thing at all. The juxtaposition of melodic, pretty synths over skittering, spastic beats, trademarked by the likes of such masters as Aphex Twin and the aforementioned Mu-Ziq, is well practiced here by this young apprentice. 1/4/2006 - Don Yates
