Rudi Zygadlo’s feral and experimental 7″ on Planet Mu

, Rudi Zygadlo’s feral and experimental  7″ on Planet Mu
While Planet Mu are more known for their electronic releases, they do occasionally dip into other territories and Rudi Zygadlo’s new Melpomene/Arrows 7″ is a fine example. Rooted in experimental and contemporary classical music, Rudi Zygadlo’s feral songs mix these styles with heady dubstep rhythms and vocal ticks.

The foundations of ‘Melpomene’ are a zippy piano melody which unfolds into ’70s ballad vocals, accordion and dramatic passsages. ‘B-side ‘Arrow’ goes through all of the above touchstones before settling on a stuttering string quartet. It’s fantastical. The producer will have a second album called Tragicomedies out later in the year.

The sumptuous video is by Nick Rutter.
