Item Description
Few parents while away time at the school gates discussing analogue synthesizers, dusty
drum machines, and obscure old records. Then again, few parents are quite as musically
decorated as Mark Evetts and Stuart Hobbs.
Evetts, of course, has carved out a successful career as a globetrotting DJ/producer under
the Mark E alias, delivering a string of killer albums and singles on such esteemed labels
as Running Back, Spectral Sound, Golf Channel Recordings, ESP Institute and his own
Merc imprint. As for Glasgow-raised Hobbs, he currently works as a producer out of his
own SHONK studio in Oxford, having previously co-owned Crash Records in Glasgow,
and appeared in all manner of weird and wonderful bands alongside former members of
Teenage Fanclub, Superstar, Ride and Candyskins.
As the duo got to know each other – and their shared musical interests – while waiting to
pick up their respective five year-old daughters from school, a plan began to form. They’d
get together in the studio to have some fun, indulging in “an eclectic groove-driven forage
into the wonky playing of first takes”. They decided nothing was off limits except “the
formula”. Thus, Quarry Hollow was born.
The first results of their musical partnership are presented on this fine debut EP for Leng.
It’s a deliciously warm, fuzzy and off-kilter exploration that touches on numerous musical
styles, whilst developing an endearing loose mix of krautrock guitars, heavy dub basslines,
bongo-laden percussion and fluttering synthesizer lines.
“The Path Of Tranquility”, the EP’s triumphant title track, sounds like an unlikely jam
session between Tangerine Dream, Terry Riley, Can and The Idjut Boys – all picturesque
synthesizer lines, attractive cyclical melodies, fuzzy guitar textures and rolling, organic
percussion. It’s utterly sublime.
“Long Slide” takes a drowsy, high-grade fuelled trip into Balearic dub territory, with aquatic
funk guitars drifting in and out of a mix that wisely emphasizes the duo’s heavyweight
bass, live percussion and ghostly synthesizers. “Masons Arms”, on the other hand, tips
a wink to low-slung post-punk rock, whilst at the same time maintaining one eye on
the dancefloor via restless percussion, Doors-style organ riffs and hazy, psychedelic
electronics.
Formula-free music from the margins: what’s not to like?
