Blek Ink is a collection of Icelandic pop songs by way of dissonance and abstraction. Paul Lydon's voice is a gentle presence amongst clamorous guitars, chimes and keyboard sounds. He's been releasing tapes on his Nano label for years now and put out an instrumental album two years ago under the name Sanndreymi. While that album shared a musical sphere with Tower Recordings and Dead C, Blek Ink, his first release on Ba Da Bing, throws in a little Alastair Galbraith. The sound is more song-oriented, fitting together incongruous musical passages like they were always meant to collide.
