Should the mooted apocalypse ever arrive, any survivors would most likely stumble around the remains of civilization with a soundtrack of Shackleton records playing in their heads. There's something undeniably creepy about "Furnace of Guts", the ten minute title track of the producer's first release in 15 months. While its bustling, hypnotic, marimba style melodies are nominally quite beautiful, they're arranged in a particularly unsettling way, with the accompanying off-kilter tribal beats and doom-laden noises only serving to enhance the edgy, paranoid mood. He explores similarly hallucinatory pastures on marginally more cheery flipside "Wakefulness and Obsession", where more wonky melodic percussion comes smothered in gloopy electronics, choral chants, mind-mangling samples and bad-trip electronics.
