The experimental producer will release his new album next week.
The producer, who last appeared in full-length mode in 2006 with Scattered Practices on Microcosm Music, has made the jump to Anticipate for the release of Surfaces of a Broken Marching Band. It wasn't hard—both labels are his own. Surfaces is very much in line with its title: Honig's cobbled together compositions are the sound of something broken struggling to right itself. In its effort, the end result is an abstract vision of techno that owes debts to the likes of Jan Jelinek and Twerk. Implied rhythms, shards of guitar and field recordings all nestle into one another for an understated work that rarely announces itself, but often doesn't let go as well. Or something like that. You'll be able to judge for yourself come October 13th when Surfaces sees release.
