Andy Stott We Stay Together on Limited Edition 2LP

2015 Repress

Mastered and Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin

Recorded in the immediate aftermath of his EP Passed Me By, this double LP from Andy Stott features six productions that are more desolate and exposed than anything on its predecessor. The opening "Submission" tumbles into being with layers of washed-out digital revolutions, creating an artificial landscape that's quite at odds with the analog machinations that follow - yet somehow rendering the alienated feel of this material perfectly. 

"Posers" nudges its way into being abruptly and embeds another squashed funk variant that's all low-lit neon and growling textures, awkwardly shuffling into a more robust 4/4 template suffused with sparkling percussion and disembodied vocals. "Bad Wires" is the centerpiece of the set, a relentless percussive clusterfuck that belies its slow tempo with a fearless, rhythmic attitude. It's as immersive and narcotic as anything ever produced by Stott - peeling away one layer after another with each repeated listen. 

"We Stay Together (Part One)" was the first track written for the album and offers a more spacious narrative and a more sparkling, hazy palette - culminating in a beautifully frayed central hook that's somehow in keeping with the VHS aesthetic of both Jamal Moss and Ferris Bueller. "Cherry Eye" tumbles deep into a darkened hole before closer "Cracked" turns up, fueled by an odd mixture of adrenalin and sorrow to send you on your way, buzzing and forlorn.
