Heal and Come Again

Offkey Industries
As comebacks go, 'Heal' doesn’t reach Bobby Ewing-like proportions, but it’s still great to see Matt O’Brien reviving Offkey Industries. He re-starts the label in fine style with 'And Through the Other Side', where a prowling bass supports frostily atmospheric synths and mysterious electro riffs without losing any momentum. 'One Night in Old Street' is a slower paced, warbling acid workout, while 'Caru' is the standout track, where woozy melodies and beautiful piano keys meet with O’Brien’s tight drums and rhythms. It's great to hear O'Brien's off-centre sounds again.
