To some this album will sound like the proverbial broken record. To others it will be a blissed-out aural experience in which to immerse one’s self. According to the promo material Seht is currently ‘obsessed with making music inspired by hypnosis, contact microphones, and the run-in and run-out grooves of thrift store LPs’. That's a very good description of what it sounds like, and it sure is good to know that there are people like Wellington’s Stephen Clover out there trying to push the boundaries of what people will include under the heading ‘music’ in their mental dictionaries. Seht semi-proudly states that he has “never received an award, prize, or fellowship”, and I’m sure that’s of no concern to him, because music like this is created for the love of it rather than as a way to meet Lady Gaga. The CD I reviewed is a promotional disc, because the album proper is only available on vinyl, on which I guess you could create your own skips and scratches to join in the fun!
