Mockery is the new album from Littl Shyning Man, a project from London based musician Christopher Haworth who returns after his successful ep release in 2005 'Hart of the Wud' . Taking the name Littl Shyning Man from the book “Riddley Walker” by Russell Hoban, a story set in post-doomsday England, Haworth has created in Mockery, the perfect soundtrack to this apocalyptic tale. Haunting, at times unsettling, suffused with melancholy and wonder, Mockery is a stunning and beautifully composed masterpiece. Your unready ears will be blessed with anything from woodsy folk to abrasive noise, melodic electronica to number crunching digital scree, glacial drone to synthesiser wig-outs, 8-part vocal harmony to searing guitar feedback, slap bass to spoken word, bird song to robot song, none of this to all of this, all at once and none of the time. It's like "sleepwalking through the woods.. with a better drummer" according to Flux magazine and they can't be wrong so check out Mockery out on Head+Arm/Sonic360.
