Praawander – The Number You Called (Static Caravan limited postcard/download)

SH | The Static Caravan label continues to be amazingly prolific, how they manage to match quantity to quality at this pace is quite beyond me, and the last time I checked they had day jobs. Van 250, by Praawander, is a ‘Flexi Postcard’ with recorded grooves impressed onto its surface, over artwork by honorary Super Furry and Monsterist Pete Fowler. It appears like some overlooked Victorian McGuffin, albeit one wedded to a download of the full track, ‘The Number You Called’, via some form of Fantastickal Inter-webbery. When this arrives, it turns out to be a paean of sorts to that other antiquated nicety, the ‘land line’, and its seven minutes have been on repeat play here at Doppler Mansions for the last half hour. The weird, air-raid siren krautrock stuns and invigorates in equal measure, and Dave Brock has just been glimpsed, his piercing eyes staring back at us out of the golden void which opened up hereafter.
