Roly Porter : Aftertime

The debut album of Roly Porter, formerly one half of the almighty Vex’d, is a captivating mixture of industrial, strings, world music elements and dub. With track titles referencing planets from Frank Herbert’s “Dune” universe, the compositions have moments of sweeping grandeur but also exhibit admirable amounts of restraint throughout. Reminiscent of a more atmospheric combination of Vangelis, Bad Sector, and Tim Hecker. Highly recommended.
