These low-fi home recordings by Scott -- a member of the Bats and the Clean -- were recorded in the late 90s and those who demand their music polished and honed won't find much of interest here.
But these delightful working drawing of songs, eerie instrumentals and sonic ideas -- all put down on a Tascam cassette recorder -- have much to recommend them.
Bats fans will hear echoes of that band in places, notably the opener Viva, but elsewhere there are aural explorations in tribute to the innovative German producer Conny Plank who worked with Cluster, Eno etc.
In a sense you do some of the work (imagining them rendered larger, wider, stronger) but Scott's melodic sensibilities and the quasi-ambient quality make for an album which is considerably more than the sum of its many small but fascinating parts.
