"To An End" - Rough Trade write up.
"'to an end' is the debut solo recording from luke younger of birds of delay and the human race. a haunting composition of field recordings, tape loops, percussion, and electronics, 'to an end' touches on musique concrete, power electronics, drone elements, and tone poetry to build a solid narrative whilst evading the genre fetters inherent in such terms. part one completely envelopes the listener within a cocoon of deep foreboding, invoking an aural journal of the plague years which thrills as much as it frightens. part 2 offers a glimmer of light through the dark expanse, with bell like tones floating through clouds of haze. there's a feeling of event and aftermath to this slab which is utterly unique... an awesome offering."
