8.5 out of 10
Aches (Jonny Fox) debut release 'Glass Lip' is a stunning piece of Post Dub Step-Gaze that I have found myself swooning over with every listen. I believe a random find online one day, a happy accident for sure.
The beats are complex (Dub Step meets IDM), the vocals are mysterious and vivid (extremely lulling), the atmospheres are dank & crisp (Electronic meets Classical), everything is complementing of each other in perfect harmony. 'Glass Lip' is a mostly sparse-dark chill-out zone, with a bit of glossy head trip mixed in. I'm positive this will please any serious headphoner out there.
(I'm gonna let these next words do all the talkin') RIYL: Sinner DC, Halls, Massive Attack, Burial, Robin Guthrie and the likes. Strongly Recommended to the best kind of listeners.
Standout Tracks: All of these tracks are gorgeous, ESPECIALLY; Fine Tongue, Trjus Refresh, Stop Breathing, Doesn't Reply, Bullet Sleep, Easy Ghost
