The latest venture from John Talabot's Hivern Discs label is the Parple project, a seemingly anonymous endeavour that has a lot in common with James Holden and his Border Community label. "Sacred" sees beats double up and shift in and out of time as airy melodies are fused with moody bleeps to create a dense but atmospheric style. "Ritual" sees Parple use a similar method and the wind chimes and tonal frequency shifts sound more compatible. However, on this occasion, despite the groove sounding pulsing and the rhythm more functional, the track's ethereal qualities prevail.
