Luke Slater's label celebrates the big four-o with this unconventional release courtesy of Chris Jarman. "The Bailiff" is the most functional track on offer, a peak-time affair full of stomping beats, trippy sound effects and snare rolls crashing in for maximum impact. "Death to the Valley" is also geared for the dance floor, but here the bass bursts into big puddles of fuzzy viscosity. It's the sonic equivalent of a blister being lanced as a jackhammer bashes away in the background. "Network Rail" sees Jarman opt for a different approach as hammering, stepping drums replicate the sound of chattering train, while "Radio" rounds out this unusual release with a stepping rhythm shot through with searing, noisy riffs.
