Per Hoier is a well-known deviant inside the world of laptop experimentalism. His work with V/Vm, Mr Goodiepal, and others has made many a thin dick wiggle like an otter. Or so we’ve heard. Anyway, here he is, alone and naked in the icy Danish night, doing something like a stab at pop music formalism. Because he is who he is, this is not exactly a straight take on it, but the tracks have enough normalcy between them to ‘pass’ inside many clubs and boutiques. I Start Counting/The Blueprint (LJUD 7”) has a vibe that makes me think of Man of Words-era Bowie, singing Carpenters songs, while being backed by a small combo of robotic earthworms. There is a kind of glisten that you associate with worms, isn’t there? And there are other things too. How dandy!
