Description

IX Tab - R.O.C.


R.O.C. is the sequel to 2012’s Spindle & the Bregnut Tree, the exquisitely commanding debut album from IX Tab, the solo project of the perfectly monikered Saxon Roach. IX Tab is a Paganistic sound portal opened in the West Country hinterlands – a landscape that has also thrown us the likes of Hacker Farm, Ekoplekz and Kemper Norton.


But, as captivating as Spindle… was R.O.C. reveals a startling Mesmer-rising leap into the unknown – a thousand degrees of light and shade stretching forwards stepping sideways. Densely wrapped up to the point of unwinding, IX Tab processes electronica, folk, glitch, drone, mutating spoken word and noise and subtly refracts this through an early 90’s scanner darkly – rave, ambient and even hints of 4th world trance (Transglobal Underground, Loop Guru) skewing everything into a teeming world of microscopically shifting texture. The unwavering spell, of course, is the eternal commitment to the magickal vistas opened up through Coil’s sidereal vision.


IX Tab’s soundworld is uniquely its own though and R.O.C. continually reveals beguilingly beautiful surprises. So, despite the manifold density of its layers, there are textures of wide-eyed, almost child-like innocence – a lysergic naivety that could almost make this music for children (of the stones) (on I M Wh U Mk Ov M for instance) or moments of mutant meditational new-age drift as found on St James & the 28 Pieces.


IX Tab’s universe spills out beyond sound into 2nd Fade’s artwork and a 16 page booklet overladen with esoteric ephemera running through everything from Descartes through the Monmouth rebellion of 1685 to Jung, Stockhausen and Kevin Ayers.  This is a world that is unique, uplifting and unquantifiable and Exotic Pylon is honoured to present it to the wider world.


As a great man once said “Why be bleak when you can be Blake”
