British Expeditionary Force – Chapter Two: Konstellation Neu (Erased Tapes)

Another gem on Erased Tapes, which seems like it's a bottomless pit of treasures in fairness. Here's an album of carefully shifting but still affecting electronica. From the swirling, beat-driven Cogs and chemicals; to the sublime drift of the title track with its chopped up piano pattern and layered harmonies; to the euphoric, shoegazey uplift of Where you go I will follow and something like pastoral drum machine music on Crack in the clouds. Also the glorious machine drone of Irons in fires is a great way to end the album. Thoroughly recommended.
