Pressed And is the intriguingly named collaboration of Andrew Hamlet and Mat Jones (with a surname like Hamlet, you have to imagine names are being taken at least a bit more seriously than usual), one of the hydra heads of a burgeoning southeastern electronic scene, that we've often seen in association with North Carolina's Denmark Records. Their debut LP, Imbue Up, is a testament to that emergent milieu; some are calling it post-chillwave, but the reality is a more complex interplay of primal effects and synth landscapes, rife with tension in a cascading sequence of loops and glowing drones. This is an album of sensation, that lingers and mingles in ways you rarely expect and despite its coherence never quite master.
