New album from the new band Cwtch, formerly Dementio13 Feat Pixieguts)

From review by Mark Whitby, Dandelion Radio:

"If you’ve heard my Dandelion shows before, chances are you’ve heard the members of Cwtch both together and separately, but never before as Cwtch. As Dementio13 Feat Pixieguts, they delighted us last year with mountains of electronic sound such as ‘Clearview’ and ‘Pixiegraf’, topped off with Pixieguts’ trademark vocal lines, by turns bewitching, enticing and eerie. Like getting drained slowly and left for undead by the most beautiful vampire you ever met.

Because Pixieguts lives in Australia, and Dementio13 does his stuff in Cardiff, Wales, Cwtch are emblematic of a time in which, following the gradual breakdown of barriers such as social class, technology and actually being able to play over the last few generations, now presents geography as no problem either. I don’t know if they’ve ever met or if they ever plan to meet, and I like the fact that this is utterly insignificant.

Dementio13 has been doing some of the most exciting electronic stuff of recent years whatever he’s turned his hand to (I’d highly recommend last year’s ‘Blacklung Mixer’ album), and Pixieguts adds that further dimension of both sound and space that allows the stuff to reach into spectral areas that even he doesn’t get to alone. It’s like a sonic magician with an assistant that sounds pretty one moment, the next is sawing herself in half.

But I’m conscious that my descriptions get nowhere near describing what the music of Cwtch is like. You’ve got to hear it..."
