“That’s Not Me”feels like the sound design for the opening credits to a thriller — maybe a video game, likely a film, but in any case a very good thriller, indeed, packed with septuple agents and all matter of styling, technologically mediated skullduggery. The underlying pulse of the piece is a slow, methodical burr that rises up and cuts off. It’s like a contained flare, or an especially militant drone. The track, recorded by Adam Fielding, sets the pace for a growing assembly of careful additions. There’s a secondary beat that eventually arrives, the echo treateed as a rhythmic shadow, and then vaporous percussion and thick atmosphere synthesis fill in the space between those pulses.
