Review: Electro pushers Koova, Yes Effect and Pip Williams are back with their London Modular Alliance project, a consortium of sounds that clearly don't need much of an explanation. Their one rule is that this is all improv business, no mucking about with needless arrangements on tacky DAWs. This is the first Dimensions Recordings EP that's not a VA, so it's a tiny landmark for both them and the artists; the title tune "Hands & Brains" kicks off with a squelching acid stomper with an abrasive stomp of melodies, and "False Prophecy" is the point at which things take a turn for the electro nuttiness, all sombre and grey-scaled. On the flip, "Forbidden" takes the path down more tranquil waters with a peaceful balearic sway, and "I Settled For Her Leftovers" bumps out the bass good and proper, bruising us with its heavy-loaded sub-bass. Heavy gear!
