Climactic mercury

A softly gonging,
dub-inflected cover of Sonic Youth's signature tune of breathy sexual tension Shadow of a Doubt (Spot) is a welcome chance to briefly highlight the last constituent of Anticipate's great trio (after Ezekiel Honig & Mark Templeton) - the mercurial, multi-personaed Klimek.

Hear his cavernously slowed, found voice-laced take below, along with the self-evidently
far less dubby Roller Coaster Dub - an outstanding (& downloadable) shimmering vamp from his Solid State Transmitters collaboration with Polish quartet Kwartludium.

More goodies embedded - but unshareable, regrettably - at Klimek's SoundCloud. They include an exceptional dark jazz workout under the name Foton Kwartet (not a group I know, but that's no guarantee of anything much...) & an epic, loping live encounter.

Oh, & don't miss out on the riches of Klimek's stuffed YouTube channel. Here's four examples, including a pair of stand-outs from his masterpiece -
