The debut solo album by former Late of the Pier frontman Sam Dust has taken five years to record. Apparently he also spent that time travelling the world, doing scientific research and on the creation of a number of new inventions.
What that long gestation period also explains why the record feels so disjointed. Most effective on the liquid electro-funk of Oino and Party Zute/Learning To Love, elsewhere it embraces pure electronica with varying results (Lorry Park channels Aphex Twin to pleasing effect but opener Occasion is less successful).
