Purdy – Body Variations

Listening to Purdy’s Body Variations is like falling through time, moving backwards and forwards through Middle Eastern dances, robotic voices and a disorientating barnyard. The electronica flow is continuous throughout, changing but never dropping.

Static mixes with acoustic music, crackling and cutting, in and out, in the style of a much older recording. This is a mélange of sound, each jumping over each other like a well practiced circus act.

Though it is filled with juxtaposing elements, it continues to progress to a steady beat, marching on and lingering in the mind. (SP)
