Glitchy MP3

The Fallt label regularly posts inventive electronica downloads that emphasize precision, elegance and glitch. The “spring 2006 exclusive” currenly on its site (fallt.com) is six and a half minutes of brittle minimalism: “Pumilum,” courtesy of Tonne (aka Paul Farrington), the lightly crackling textures of which suggest a lo-res digital fireplace with its embers dialed down (go to this page for the MP3: fallt.com). Those pixelated percussives disperse a rapid-fire array of beats, and amid them Tonne places a minimal-techno series of held notes. The final fade out is particularly enjoyable.
