i can (i will), kigo.

It was a little while back that we first tuned into the slushy pedalboard-born onslaught of Brisbane shoegazer kigo, when the cruddy glories of guilt flumped leaden in our inbox. And with i won’t (i can’t) – the standout of a four-track entitled some other place – D.P. Pearce goes one better: for if his inability to correctly capitalise may engender despair in English grammar instructors the world over, then Pearce’s alluvium-like tunes would doubtless delight Kevin Shields were he ever to unplug the in-ear foam. And although some stoking subwoofer or other would be required to fully indulge this one, there’s a vulnerable melody to be found gestating in its tender underbelly – one covered up with a dense thicket of squalling feedback, imperceptible vocal and metronomic beats. Best come in alone below.
