found Cloning (CD, £10.50)label: chemikal underground
Long-awaited return from ridiculously inventive BAFTA-winning robot-makers, sound installation artists and 7” ‘vinyl’ chocolatiers FOUND. • Fundamental changes have taken place since FOUND launched ‘factorycraft’, their first on Chemikal Underground, in 2011. More than four years have passed. The trio are now a duo of Ziggy Campbell and Kev Sim. • On ‘Cloning’, the group’s new album, the sound of FOUND is wreathed in a haar of analogue synthesisers where once it buzzed with brittle guitars. • Campbell acknowledges his and Sim’s thoughts turned to matters apocalyptic as a means of defeating the monotony of touring ‘factorycraft’. At the same time they were plugging into Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and John Carpenter, electronic music pioneers Beaver & Krause and Tristram Cary and composers Alan Hawkshaw and Keith Mansfield.
