  1. Dean Blunt - NOLA Freestyle
  2. There's not much we can say about Honour that makes complete sense. They may or may not have grown up in the US, making beats with a cousin who sang in a church band; they might have toured as a roadie with platinum-selling R&B outfit Pretty Ricky before acing regional videogame tournaments and moving to NYC; they could have sold their life story to children's book author C.S. Adler and signed to Violator management; and maybe they ended up stationed in London, working as a runner on music promos. But however plausible it is, the breadcrumb trail provides us with a detailed cultural framework for "Beg 4 Mercy", a dense fog of pop and underground references that's as inescapable as it is enticing. It's a rare debut that engulfs even the most cautious listener, sweeping through tongue-in-cheek Wild West bravado and psychedelic, overdriven club rap, bifurcating into crumbly DIY noise and vaporous euphoric soul. Sometimes barbed and cynical, but just as often deliriously warm-hearted, it's a record of contradictions that's as puzzling to unpick as the artist's baffling backstory, imprinted with more hidden messages than a Renaissance painting. Who needs to play identity bingo when the art's screaming so loudly?
  3. Vinyl (250 copies) Volume 1. https://boomkat.com/products/hbk-vol-1-na-god
  4. Favourite album: Brad E. Rose - Annular Silhouettes Runners Up - Honour - HBK Vol 1 & 2 Demdike Stare - Tryptych
  5. https://honour2.bandcamp.com/album/hbk-vol-1-2 IYL Demdike Stare, Niggas with Guitars, Hype Williams.
  6. New on Folklore Tapes. Sort of Delia Derbyshire, Nigel Kneale's early 70s BBC Drama 'The Stone Tape', Drew Mulholland, Early Ghostbox, etc. You know the vibe.
  7. Yeah, it sounds utterly gorgeous. Alva Noto, Gore and Basinski. What a dream collaboration.
  8. This has slipped to the 23rd. I've also seen one site listing it as late January 2023.
  9. Having said all that. The whole thing is almost completely saved by 'Tomason' with its godly, off-kilter chord changes which have been their trademark since the beginning. They're still IDM masters.
  10. After a first listen this feels plodding and unremarkable. The first track is classic stuff but (for me) it only really picks with 'Return to Return' and the excellent 'Tomason'. The others feel like B-sides or stuff they'd previously shelved. It's okay but if you were expecting the beauty of 'Reach Prints' or 'The Digging Remedy' you may be disappointed.
  11. Is 'Where it's Going" available on any release? Ah, Wonky.
