As predicted, Laconic is a departure from lessons of the early Printer. It is the maturation and dedication to craft that we’ve been waiting, so long for, from Gillenwalters. Unmistakably one of the most challenging, provocative albums to ever grace the Dingus front page, refraining AnCo type spacing, mixing Black Moth synth aesthetics and blooming a completely new brand, Basic Printer has reached a peak. Hopefully, not the peak. It’s completely unafraid to let long droning moments play until infinity, it’s completely unconcerned with fitting any pop stereotypes that will ever get radio play. It is a perfect 10. Pitchfork, take notice.
