Guthrie's all acoustic set morphs expertly from a single pulsing bass drum to thundering metallic decay with no relaxation of structural rigour, stamina or precision. At ease behind a shimmering wall of pedals and gongs, 10.5.16 is looser, lighter yet more complex than Sacrée Obsession, as Guthrie creates and navigates space with Shamen-esque focus.
