England's Andy Stott is a master of weaving tense beauty through a bleak techno-addled landscape. As Justin F. Farrar put it in his review of the man's recent Luxury Problems, his approach is "murky, dense, menacing, feral, exotic, and humid ... a genre-dissolving iteration of infinitely layered bass decay." Stott is the latest in an impressive string of artists to contribute to the current Adult Swim Singles series, adding "Anytime Soon" to the growing oeuvre.

The eight-minute track builds slowly, establishing a paranoiac mood of ever-shifting beat-work and disembodied voice as he builds to a more perfect danceable noise. "The danger is in the thrill," sings a woman over the blackened groove, and indeed, some sort of ominous evil seems to lurk. For now, the song is only streaming over at Gorilla vs Bear.

Previous entries in the series have come from Captain Murphy, Marnie Stern, Run the Jewels, Kitty, METZ, Dan Deacon, Mykki Blanco, Autre Ne Veut, Freddie Gibbs, Mac DeMarco, and Lightning Bolt. Visit Adult Swim for more info.
