Clockwork Atom

Leisure System
For all its skipping subtlety there’s something a little devoid in the three tracks on offer on Rob Clouth’s debut outing for Berlin’s Leisure System. At the halfway point of ‘Islands of Glass’, his swamped synth bowels and ticky percussion drops, and it makes most sense as the crescendo he’s been meticulously building up to. But elsewhere the material is a little reminiscent of Morris Cowan without showing anywhere near Cowan’s excitable ear for melody.
