Quimper's a new name to me. He followed me on Twitter. So it works (assuming attention-grabbing was the aim). Domino is a comp of material from 2012 to 2016 and displays an aptitude for various styles all created with a good deal of taste and skill, from light songs such as Soft Bodies to more ominous horror tales like Daddy Fell Into The Pond and Banshee. There are post (?) Ice Wave (ha-ha) songs and the string-driven, stomping Teeth. It's New Wave Industrial Fusion Detroitous, scuzzy, bright, clean, simple, complex and worth replaying to appreciate the breadth. I admire anyone attempting diversity whilst retaining an identity and doing it so well.
Good news! Starkland are releasing previously unheard material by Tod Dockstader, selected from over 4,200 sound files left behind by Dockstader, who died in 2015. Read more about it here.
