QXTC - Reality on Charles Street

Tireless electro-philanthropist QXTC (aka Gavin Bradshaw) has never been a man to rest on his laurels. Over the past few years or so he has released almost five and a half hours of free music, via six albums and four EPs- the latest of which, Reality On Charles Street, was released recently on the Vorbic netlabel.

Inspired by a sudden sense of life felt whilst walking through his native Manchester, the EP sets ambient synth colour-washes and occasional, disjointed vocal samples to skittering beats which sound akin to buckets of marbles being dropped down the stairs. The EP is available to stream or download from right here– if you enjoy it then look forward to his seventh album, released imminently via hippocamp.net (home to former RvD performers Domestication of the Dog and Scrubber Fox, amongst others) which will feature reworked versions of EP tracks AngleDrive and Spitting Bullets, the second of which you can find in the embedded player at the bottom of this post.

Meanwhile, check out his myspace if you’d like to have a nose through the rest of his considerable back catalogue- won’t cost you anything, after all…
