about

Warm Gospel 57

Twelve rounds, and “Mill City” comes out swinging. Throwing tape echo jabs left and right. AM radio beats thickened by the technology of nostalgia. It’s built on loops but every “track” is a miniature mixtape on its own, packed as full with tiny embellishments as Loopdigga cuts. Auxiliary percussion strikes from the canvas signaling movement changes, like watching the feet instead of the eyes. Interview snippets communicate a kind of narrative, but the real experience is sensory, not bogged down by language. Stance changes. Decrescendos. Feints.

“Mill City” is the debut album from Ridgewell, aka the proprietor of California-based label, Haju Tapes. A quick sweep of that label’s discography will give you an idea of where his production interests lie. But “Mill City” is more personal. It’s an exploration of a single location over time, like creating a collage from an entire history of a community’s sensory experiences.
