A Dull, afterthought...
13 Homes

Millimetre is Northern Ireland’s Terence J. McGaughey and ‘13 Homes’ comes hot on the heels of last year’s excellent experimental synth-pop offering ‘Heliography’. McGaughey should have taken more time - ‘13 Homes’ feels like an afterthought and is dull as fuck.

Apparently a “collection of songs about exile”, the album quickly becomes lost in a morass of mid-paced electro squiggles topped off with McGaughey’s disinterested monotone. The fractured keyboard of ‘Frozen’ at least sounds pleasantly menacing and just as electronica-induced narcolepsy kicks in, the bombastic trance beats of ‘Unkonshus’ hits a home run. Prepare to be disappointed.
