Smoke Notes

Few people would name themselves after an acid dealer, yet Tom Jenkinson is no ordinary human being, and his releases as Squarepusher continue to astound and frustrate in equal doses. A constant experiment is possibly the easiest way to describe Jenkinson's music, and like other artists signed to Warp, he has been given free licence to release what he wants, with the results stunning most of the time, and a little tried when left uninspired by the world around him. Thankfully 'Ultravisitor' is a sonic thrill ride comparable to early albums 'Feed Me Weird Things' and 'Hard Normal Daddy', and arguably his best and certainly most consistent work to date. The glitch and breaks of previous releases are now countered with some stunning live instrumentation resulting in an album of epic scope and ambition. The title tracks opens the album, a moody piece of music that constantly reinvents itself after collapsing within its musical instensity. "I Fulcrum", on the other hand, presents "moody" in a different setting, with live bass matched against a melacholic prettiness in much the same way that the Aphex Twin manages to be "ugly beautiful". Things get really out there on "50 Cycles" where Jenkinson's sense of humour comes strongly to the fore - spoken word farce is matched against pure evil. "Menelec" then takes us to a barren wasteland of ice and tundra, its atsmopshere so chilling as to send shivers up your spine - kind of like waking up in the Antarctic before a barrage of barely manageable breaks switches the cut into drum & bass for the year 3000. 'Ultravisitor' is an often frightening experience, yet also completely rewarding, and few albums manage to stimulate so many senses all at once, and few are made by such a gifted musician. Jenkinson's music brings to mind other forward thinking musicians - Ornette Coleman and Frank Zappa immediately spring to mind. Very few innovators today could expect such high praise, yet Squarepusher is as challenging as music gets, and upon listening to 'Ultravisitor', very few would disagree. Recommended (especially for those who like their ears and mind to work a little).
