Album stream: Lorem Ipsum – Between Hospitals

A solo project of a young witty Dublin dude who would Totally prefer to remain anonymous, Lorem Ipsum’s debut album Between Hospitals is a 10-track lo-fi, scratchy ride through the electronic underworld, a murky metallic trip featuring buzzing synths, distorted beats and discombobulating rhythms.

A lot of the 10-track album sounds like Zomby if he composed music that was about to disintegrate which is part of its lo-fi charm (or if he forgot to get his music mastered) but there’s plenty of original rhythms to keep you interested. It’s also got a weird cover of Jennifer Paige’s ‘Crush’ that sounds like the song was recorded in an echo chamber. Listen to the album below or via Bandcamp.

Here’s the official Lorem Ipsum bio:

Lorem Ipsum is the project of Howard H. Baker, a compact cassette enthusiast living at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains. It is entirely reliant on homemade tape loops garnered from his 10,000+ cassette collection, taking in carefully-scissored and respooled samples from 1970s RTE Talk Shows, drum n’ bass pirate broadcasts, and Nina Simone bootlegs.

Saturday night sees the launch of Lorem Ipsum’s debut album released on archaic cassette tape with a right aul knees up in the Twisted Pepper featuring support Angkorwat and Lamont Bailey @ Twisted Pepper (11.30pm, €7 or €10 with tape, flyer)
