Corker Conboy – Radiant Idiot

Post-rocking, micro-house enthusiasts release second album

Trending Now

Hardworking Londoners Adrian Corker and Paul Conboy have recorded as both Soul Circuit and Ape?the latter for Tim Simenon’s Electric Tones imprint?and recently finished working on his forthcoming new Bomb The Bass LP. Happily, they’ve still found time to deliver their own second LP. Radiant Idiot moves away from the narrow, post-rock parameters of their debut into more open territory, mixing atmospheric glitch with keyboard washes, trumpet flourishes and sampled strings to fine-boned effect, while never forsaking motorik drive. The title track is the standout, a luminous, polyrhythmic flurry. Radiant indeed.
