There is something in the er tonight! To Er is Human makes an approach to human error like tree lizards fighting for the right to spawn. Like hearing owl songs underwater during a red moon. Like feedback from a burnt out telecaster in the ceiling of a cement factory. It is cunningly surprising and yet cannily beautiful. Through samples, voices, velocity nodes and resonant insights, by turn fleeting and crass, subliminal and cranked, a sonic cudgel of revolutionary bliss emerges…
