After bringing his drumming skills to the Lifted project for PAN, Jeremy Hyman pitched up on Future Times late last year, contributing an impressive cut to the Washington D.C label's Vibe 3 compilation. Couch is his first solo 12", and a quietly impressive one at that. In typical Future Times fashion, the title track bristles with glassy-eyed positivity, thanks in part to Hyman's layered, contrasting melodies, rubbery groove, and starry electronics. The track's "everything but the kitchen sink" feel is retained on the sparkling, Japanese electro-influenced flipside cut "Occupy Crawlspace", while closer "New Edition" should probably be described as "bonkers but brilliant". An assured debut, all told.
