Album Notes
The Paranoid Foundation continue their voyage of discovery with the new mini-album, threads, their 5th official release following foundations (2004), double negative (2006), the music of chance (2007) and life death indifference (2008).

This mini-album was somewhat unusually recorded onboard a ship in the cold South Atlantic Ocean. Taking Crispin Lee's pre-recorded vocal fragments, Andrew Walker spent every spare moment of a working, two-month deployment on the small survey vessel in a cramped cabin, fervently engaged in musical activity. Many miles off the barren, windswept South American coastline, Andrew constructed the tracks that became threads.

The heavy rolling seas and uncomfortable conditions could hardly fail to exert a strong influence on the resulting sound. Threads is very much the product of these extreme circumstances - heavily apparent within its six atmospheric, beat-heavy tracks. Industrial ambience, cryptic lyrical themes combined with the isolation in which they were produced have resulted in the most intriguing Paranoid Foundation set thus far.

Vital Weekly review:

Andrew Walker worked two months abroad on a ship in the cold South Atlantic Ocean. He spent every spare moment of work to create music in his little cabin. He worked with the pre-recorded voice of Crispin Lee. His voice was already great mixed at the album Closedown (Vital Weekly 775) with drony sound layers. For now Andrew Walker mixes the voice with less abstract music. Every track has it's own rhythm and beats which supported by dark tones and basic melodies. The music is dark, ongoing, melancholic and atmospheric. The minimal melodies take care for open moments in the compressed mood. The music refers to Electronic Body Music, like Front 242, but less industrial and aggressive. The strength of Paranoid Foundation is that they know how to create an strong atmosphere in a short moment. The albums have a straight idea and they work it out in the time they needed it and no minute longer. Great album! (JKH)
