about

Misc.’s fifth release arrives just as Misc. turns one, and it’s one for the occasion, to be sure. A carefully curated, mastered and packaged collection of once-disparate tracks dating back 5+ years, Amanda Butterworth’s dreamy Misc. Works defies its assembled/archival status, resonating as a gripping, muscular, often haunting work in the singular.

Present here are guitars, FX, synths, loops, a 606, 707 and, perhaps most affectingly, Mücha’s voice, omnipresent and drifting through the 4-track mix like vapour. Her past band werk has certainly made its mark: these are ‘songs’ as much as ‘scapes’. Yet the line between the two is never clear. Perhaps they’re simply both. Or neither.

Either way, for this extra-special edition – which, like all of our offerings to date, is also an artwork – they’re glued together by cassette, cosied up in contiguous bliss like the passing clouds on its cover. There’s a suggestiveness to the choice of motif, but also a sarcasm: Misc. Works, for all it drifts and drones, is anything but ‘miscellaneous’.

Make of that what you will. Or, even better, stick the tape on, see/hear for yourself, and forget about the shite you read in the blurb. The only way is up. See you there.
