Stepping out of his demanding role as the other Lone Swordsman, Keith Tenniswood is finally able to release his latest solo effort on his own Control Tower imprint. Growl stacks up 11 cuts of machine-driven electro, analog to the core and step-sequenced like nobody’s fuckin’ business. With the exception of Andrew Weatherall’s cameo on “Double Dealings” and Dot Allison’s marginally tolerable murmuring on “Nothing at All,” the album is built with the kind of box-banging electro Tenniswood is known for. From the nasty, mechanical shuffle of “State of That” to the silken synth amperage of “Dalston to Detroit” and “Up in the Air,” Tenniswood shows us what all those knobs and blinking lights can really do in the right hands.
