Yet again, Kieran Hebden – better known to most as Four Tet – has released a new single on his label, TEXT. Just coming off another TEXT release last month called “Jupiters,” it is not preposterous to think (hope) that he’s making plans for a new full-length album soon. Being that his last LP was released in the beginning of 2010, I’d say it’s about time.
“128 Harps” is a positively stunning piece, starting with some solid, tribalistic drums. There is an air of elegance and class when Hedben dusts the harps over the earthy bassline. Hebden does what he does best with this song – making complex connections and leaps while maintaining an air of beauty and confidence hard to replicate. Being one of the most experiential producers in the electronic world today, his tracks are always surprising in the most captivating way and this production is absolutely no exception.
