Harel Schreiber is a Tel Aviv-based artist and the founder of the Confused Machines label. On that label, he has released a number of EPs as Mule Driver. He was recently invited to release a digital EP on the Dutch label Creme Organization and the result is State of Decay – a dark reflection upon our current times. Just listen to “Nothing Is the New Something”. Mostly instrumental, but some of the tracks feature spoken vocals that perhaps don’t add much to the mix. Opening track “Snorer” is a brilliant cut of cold, retro-sounding electro. It’s the first release on the label since last year’s Rhythmic Theory LP.
