Russian Glitch MP3

The Russian netlabel top-40.org has an ironic name — sarcastic, even. The music it releases, that is to say, is anything but. Characteristic of the work is Top 40’s most recent collection, P_Sh‘s Changed Weather Melodies, which is a set of glitchy, fragile sonic maneuvers. Changed Weather is typified by the album’s first, untitled track (MP3). In it, a thick bed of static-laced droning — listen closely for the tiny breaks and resets, loops and wisps — is slowly overtaken by a gentle, rusty, melody-like line. Absolutely beautiful. The full album has seven cuts: five more untitled pieces and a remix.
