William Sargent So many rich sounds. What are brown pillows? Release more Thighpaulsandra on bandcamp! I would buy it!

Fiagd Let me put it simply: this is how genuinely experimental electronic music of today should sound; located away from any tags and categorisations, amalgamating the future, present and the past.

Jonathan Abresch Genius level electronics. Surreal poetry declaimed in Welsh baritone over extended compositions built from what must be a vast array of synths pushed to their limits. How he discovered the music in the whirrs and burbles and shrieks and moans is a mystery but the result is a wholly pleasurable journey. Favorite track: Brown Pillows.

Gwynplaine de Pétroleuse A bewildering package of auditory oddities. Each track on Practical Electronics has sections of spectacularly eerie drones and electronic keys, whirs and cracks, while other sections consist of Thighpaulsandra's strangely humorous and twisted spoken words and shouts over loud blaring electronic beats. A very unique album that demands and rewards full attention.

As audacious as the sleeve it comes housed in, the UK’s most eccentric audio malefactor returns with his eighth studio album, Practical Electronics with Thighpaulsandra. Unique in the Thighpaulsandra oeuvre, this one eschews the usual group based recordings, consisting of electronics and vocals only.

Hovering between haunted narratives and extended instrumental sequences Practical Electronics is an eccentric excursion into playful pop and fearless electronic experimentation. Simultaneously intimidating and accessible, the energy of this untamed mind unleashes an artefact where high art unfolds as an oblique electronic cabaret.

Having cut is teeth amongst such legendary outfits such as Coil and Spiritualized Thighpaulsandra has constantly catapulted himself further and further into a musical landscape utterly of his own devising. Practical Electronics is the latest exemplary installment of a voice that is uncompromising as it is outlandish.
