The Leeds-based collective 8MANA deliver another instalment of bassy left-field experiments on their new compilation, ‘Proficiency Bonus’.
The star of 8MANA’s last release, Lapsung, contributes the blissful ‘October Fourteenth’ to the 11-track compilation (which also features the likes of Distal and Pixelord on top label regulars). Glitched out vocal stabs and harp strings wash over idiosyncratic rhythms with drum hits that seem to hiccup along to the beat.
‘Proficiency Bonus’ is released on the 5th July. Preorder from the label’s Bandcamp now.
