New Music of the Day: LXVII – Got My Ticket Out of Here – MOSAIC

11214190_1639133509703387_3526501432105327802_nMosaic have been making odd, experimental demos for the past year, but put them together recently and accidently turned out this low-fi mini masterpiece about being lost youths in a souless concrete town. No autotune or sonic smoothery in earshot and it’s a challenging but at times extraordinary listen. Proudly dissonant and cacophonous one minute, dreamily ambient and mumbly the next, then punkishly bolshy and cinematic. It’s brilliantly original and ambitious stuff. Imagine Eno and Steve Reich sharing methCider with Bjork and Mark E Smith as teenagers hanging round desolate West Country bus stations and making a racket. You’re almost there. Very proud of them.
