WITH a series of British live dates coming up across the autumn – for details of those, pop down the page a little – the brilliant Ryan Lee West, aka Rival Consoles, has dropped a new summery slice of his characteristically chattering, atmospheric electronica; it’s entitled “Pulses Of Information”, and you can delight in it below.
Having just premiered on Mary Anne Hobbs’ 6 Music show, it indeed pulses with a grand textural depth, echoing and refracting like intelligent sonar, pulsing as per the apt title, transporting you into a world of dit-ditting abstracted communication with a swell of distant string haze. He really is something. You can pick up the digital single here – it’s out right now on Erased Tapes.
The single preludes a tour in support of last year’s wondrous Articulation mini-album, and the dates are as follows – click through on the venue hyperlink for tickets and more information:
