Melbourne synthesist Harvey Sutherland brings four stripped-back rhythm tracks to Echovolt Records for his debut 12ï¿½. Features a long edit of 'Q3' from last year's limited cassette release, plus three new original cuts.Developed and refined from Sutherland's improvised live show, the 'Edges E.P.' glides between the sparse melodic funk on 'Sunday Flower' to the tightly-wound house shuffle of 'Speaking Your Language'. The title track rounds out the B-side - a long rollicking hardware jam, all Juno brass and marching band snares.

The collage of sounds on this record fit so well together: traditional instruments, electronic dance, experimental soundscapes, IDM... The individual tracks are great, but this project truly excels when taken as a complete work. If you're at all interested in what's going on in the forefront experimental electronic music, this is where you should start Ryan Krantz
Spacey and dreamy with a cool, laid-back groove. Reminds me of Air if they were less overtly poppy and more jazzy and complex. Make no mistake, though - this is almost as catchy. It's just less direct. The guitar solo in The Gloves Don't Bite is dope as heck, by the way. Smekermann
