‘The Practice of Pseudoscience’, a three track EP by M Parent, is the second vinyl release from the US based label Chem Club Records. Having been inspired by peripheral thoughts about pseudosciences, this EP is washed in steady emotional build ups using airy reverb, scattering percussion, throbbing stabs and solid kicks. The title track (A1) uses these elements to move towards a piercing synth peak while ‘Cycle of Intellect’ (A2) spaces out these features as it creeps to a dubby impactful end. The B side ’Temazcal Rites’ was directly motivated by a scorching summer day when the intensity of the sun sparked an idea for a sizzling percussive experiment. What we’re left with is a funky but emotive soundscape that tops off the EP in a unique fashion.
