Post is the solo guise for James Wilkinson, who has gleefully cracked the ground between free jazz and punk in Bucketrider and made sonic cinema with the electro-dub-hip-hop fusion of High Pass Filter. He’s also provided innovative sound design as director for the internationally acclaimed Snuff Puppets, and his adventurous spirit runs free through Post’s pop persona. It’s the same ecstatic abandon shared by the likes of Mouse on Mars, Plaid and Caribou Post’s playful but stirring sense of composition makes for a set where bouncy dancefloor-bound fun, retro-futurist funk, spacey jazz noir and ambient atmospheres face off at fizzing tangents. Strings, guitars, recorders and piano on the album were recorded at David Bridie’s studio The Enormodome, with further creating, recording and mixing taking place at Wilkinson’s own Wilkinsound studio. The final mixes were done with Francois Tetaz, who has worked on remixes for Aphex Twin and composed the soundtrack for Australian film Wolf Creek. The array of collaborators on Post also includes renowned experimenters Anthony Pateras (piano) and Robin Fox (electronics). For all its smarts, Post is the sound of a man in love with the worlds of sonics and song, and therein lies its warm, immediate appeal.
