Black Hat is one Nelson Bean a recent transplant from California, and a most welcome addition to the Seattle music landscape. Spectral Disorder was originally issued on handmade tapes by Nelson, the reissue has been remastered by Dustin Kochel for digital. Spectral Disorder is all about the intersection of percussion and huge beautiful tones; the push-pull of rhythmic motion with floating, modulating fuzz. Comparisons to the Modern Love heavies Demdike Stare and Andy Stott aren’t far off. An immensely impressive debut.
