Comment: it is being always interesting to discover Exeter, UK-based musician Peter-David Smith aka Speculativism`s progressions in different directions on his many, approximately 15 albums. One is sure clearly conventionality is not on his menu. His issues are being quite lengthy, for instance, the recent issue extends beyond 80 minutes. Roughly it could be said he likes to experiment with lyrics and sounds, at times those lyrics and pun are truly funny and surreal, the sounds light up tremendous swaying in Smith`s soundscape. Indeed, mostly it is avant-rock/progressive rock oriented madness which is filled with many changes in structure and soundscape (all those paradiddling keyboard sounds coming in and then leaving out of focus) at times it is more restrained (yet uncanny and even ghastly) thereby being more closely related to singer-songwriter-like approach though it is contingent. Emotionally the whole is amusing, of course, because all will be changing and winding throughout the course. In a nutshell, it could be concluded it is a solid interface between comedy and dada art, art/progressive rock, electronic music, and something else additionally which is elusive enough to subject it to my words and sentences.
