Two Wendt MP3s

Among the first releases of the new year from 8bitrecs.com — one of the best netlabels out there, providing free downloadable experimental electronic music — are a pair of tracks from Alexander Wendt (files here), reportedly aka (klex)periment, klexxer and wendt. “Grad” sounds a bit like Kraftwerk’s idea of glitch, the scratchy static of computer noise applied to a utilitarian rhythm, with a brief, deadpan vocal event. “Belsize Park” is lovely and slow, a stream of bell sounds and swells, with just enough swing to qualify it as a lullaby.
