Carefully balancing pristine sonic austerity against a backdrop of dementia, Baconhead is the combined work of producers Paul Bowyer and Ben Hudson. Taking inspiration from sludge rock, B movies and 8-bit video games, the Baconhead sound is a low-slung capsule of leftfield funk, typified by meticulous production with a heavy dose of bass and surreal touches.
