Home Video - The Automatic Process

Stick Kid A’s tricksy electronics, Thom Yorke’s voice, shoegazer Ulrich Schnauss’ synths and New Order’s sense of melody in a blender and you’d have something akin to Brooklyn’s Home Video. It would be an understatement to say that The Automatic Process sounds promising on paper. Indeed, the duo are expert at bottling melancholy and there are some nice effects here, like the bubbles rising from 'Description Of A Struggle'. Previous Home Video tracks have been utilised well mid-set by DJ Sasha (see Involv2er) but, despite everything being in its right place (geddit?), listen to eleven in a row and the effect is curiously numbing. While brains across the land are unravelling the complexities of The King Of Limbs, there doesn’t seem to be much buried here.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
