BSWC One-a-Day: SinQ - Who's Afraid of Noises?

I was dipping into a Monotonik release by Sin Q, Passage [mtk164] and detected the touch of a Lisa Debenedictis sample and I was hooked.

Hooked by the sample and then by the quiet simplicity that Sander van Oirschot, a Dutch electronic musician, brings to this release.

The Lisa Debenedictis sample comes from one of her Magnatune releases and lives at ccMixter.

The release notes discuss today's selection:

SinQ's blend of triphop, electronics, and ambient is evocative and beautiful, with first track 'Who's Afraid Of Noises?' using haunting female vocals, samples from noted Dutch jazz pianist Jeroen van Vliet, and a loping Bristolian sound to air things out in a rather wonderful way.
I should point out that this is the second reference to the Bristol sound on this blog in a week. How cool is that?

Put your headphones on and join me in contemplation.
