Here’s a gem from this year’s cannily curated Adult Swim Singles Programme.
As reported, The Cartoon Network offshoot has made it something of an annual tradition to release a brace of exclusive material from emerging and established artists. Loop-controller Axel Willner, best known (and much-loved) for his work as The Field, has now contributed a new cut to the series, titled, ‘Comenius Garden’.
As with the material from last year’s Looping State Of Mind, the track finds a middle ground between Here We Go Sublime‘s woozy repetition and Yesterday And Today’s interest in sharper textures. The murky drone and muffled drums keep the listener at arm’s length, but Willner’s circling acid-house synth figures provide a bit of pep.
Death Grips and Flying Lotus will contribute to the series in the coming weeks -keep an eye on the Adult Swim website. The Field recently issued a remix EP, featuring the likes of Blondes and Junior Boys.
