Approved: Hype Williams – Galice

CMU Approved

Hype Williams

The usually secretive Hype Williams made a rare (and non-ticketed) live appearance at London’s Tufnell Park Dome this past Saturday, sharing prior to that a new track titled ‘Galice’.

Like past HW moments-in-timeĀ ‘The Throning’, ‘The Narcissist’ or ‘2’ (a half-lit slant on Donnie & Joe Emerson’s ‘Baby’), the new track sees the London/Moscow-based Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland at their least niche in that you don’t have to sift a silt of noises, loops and reverb in order to define its real shape.

Granted, ‘Galice’ is still quite opaque, a thing of monotonic bass, spacy effects and Copeland’s inward-winding vox, but it’s the most she and Blunt will ever deign to tape anything ‘listenable’ – in the Hype Williams sense of the word.

Hear ‘Galice’ twice, once on its own and again as part of HW’s just-premiered ‘London 2012 LP’, via SoundCloud:
