Pretty Boy Crossover (Cailan Burns and Jason Sweeney) and Clan Analogue have joined creative forces to bring a new release of original beats, melody and electro-melancholia. Any Number Can Play, follows the success of the album, The Building and Formation, on Surgery Records in 2001.
Collecting four original tracks with some self-remixing activity and delicate tweeking, and another four tracks of remixes by some of Australia’s most forward-thinking electronic music geeks (Ai Yamamoto, Shimmer, Toby Kazumichi Grime, Motive), Any Number Can Play is an almost full-length gathering of askew rhythms, lilting tunes, moody moments and playful performances.
Any Number Can Play builds a bridge between Pretty Boy Crossover’s last four years of bedroom recording and old-instrument collecting, and the future sounds of mini-disc swapping and hard-drive manipulations.
“Skip hops and glitch pops through ambient rhythmic beats and organic plops, drops and blips; one of the most aurally pleasing albums of the year”
3D World album-of-the-week
“Drifting in and out of one’s consciousness, its delicate textures repay closer listening”
