Squarepusher releases second single from upcoming album, stream ‘Nervelevers’
Tom Jenkinson’s Squarepusher alias is releasing his first album since 2015, Be Up A Hello via Warp, set to drop on January 31. He released the second teaser, “Nervelevers,” a drum ‘n’ bass offering and amalgamation of glitchy sequenced synth patterns that showcases the sound engineer’s astute ear for arranged madness. With a retro 90’s techno feel, the auditory rollercoaster dips and dives through equally complex percussion elements that can confuse even the underground aficionados.
The first track from the impending album was released towards the end of November, “Vortrack,” with his brand of undefinable breakbeat. As described by the thoughtful composer, part of his album’s goal is to create new sonic palates in a space where analogue synths can sound cliché. These first two sonic palates certainly fall in a category of their own.
