not so much an album of songs, as an album of beautifully constructed noises (clicks, glitches, drum beats, blips, warbles, choral vocals & snatches of melody) that fit perfectly together - this is a fascinating avant-garde listen that will appeal to fans of julia holter, the knife or micachu/mica levi.
Herndon has become a leading light in contemporary alternative & electronic music by fearlessly experimenting within the outer reaches of dance music & pop songwriting structures. A galvanizing statement, 'Platform' cements Herndon's reputation as a unique musician with a singular voice. "At once Herndon’s most accessible & most adventurous record, this is digital age avant-garde sound art put through a pop prism, & it’s all the more exciting as a result" 8/10 - drowned in sound, "cutting-edge conceptual electronica from silicon valley-based techno futurist" 9/10 - uncut.
james canham recommends: manic, heavily textured electronic music that’s impossible to pin down. definitely the best thing i've heard this year.
