It would be fair to say that Firecracker offshoot Unthank is a little underrated. The 10″ series, which variously focuses on experimental deep house and curious downtempo explorations, has previously showcased superb work from Vakula, Inkswel, Booshank and Lord of the Isles, amongst others. Here, Vancouver’s LNRDCRY gets in on the act, opening with a wondrous chunk of horizontal ambience – think dreamy, new age chords, throbbing bass and far-out textures – before delivering a suitably saucer-eyed slice of beatless positivity. The dancefloor’s not completely ignored, of course, and the EP’s final missive is an intense romp through analogue acid blessed, of course, with LNRDCRY’s usual impeccably atmospheric chords.
