An unusually beguiling collection of Belgian dreamworld surrealism from Brussels-based artist Aymeric de Tapol, who's spent close to two decades in the European CD-r underground exploring various manifestations of static and drone. On Lost in the Shell, de Tapol evolves one step further, mostly replacing drone with a crude polyrhythmic approach that appears to arrive at the listener from all sorts of angles and origins, flip-flopping between minimal wave style pastiches and more ethereal compositions. There's an authentically primitive quality to Lost in the Shell, at times sounding like it could have been dug-up from the seemingly endless 80s tape underground, yet somehow still sounding fresh and sharp. It reminds me in part of the Mister Water Wet record on West Mineral, loosely shaded with a dream-like quality, a fuzzy and faded remembering of a few different things at once, none of which ever really fully come into view. If this were from 1983 you'd be paying a fortune for it. Edition of 200.
