Void Hands | Split Shapes & Divisive ModelsFractal Meat Cuts (CS/DL) Rhythmic oscillations and electro-click generate the ‘unforeseen order’ that Richard Knight (with Jürgen Ehrmann) concoct via Void Hands’ Split Shapes & Divisive Models.  Ironic as the artist namesake is, the handling of audio mixers is nob-crankingly lacking of vacuity.  The sour no-input calculations drip […]

Erik Levander | InåtForwind (CD/DL) Swede Erik Levender presents Inåt (translation: Inwards).  Listeners have about thirty seconds to self-reflect before being pummeled with a devastating drop.  The synth-tones like wire; meshed together to form uneasy quakes.  High-pitched frequencies counter-weight luridly grim moments of de facto doom.  The cover art (Katharina Ira Allenberg) suggests a stoney self-examination; the […]

Giona Vinti | OrcElli Records (DL) Hold on for a vicious ride in these brute four ‘layers’ conjured by Milanese composer Giona Vinti in Orc.  All four tracks consist of arrhythmic chaotic effect layering.  They are numbered simply one through four.

DC33.33 | Ibis Color Milletpan y rosas (DL) As if the eurotrack fidgeting in the improved audio isn’t enough, this reviewer is thoroughly confounded by the express association Dave Gabriel (DC33.33) shares with Imelda Marcos.  If this is some kind of quack at the food poisoning fiasco of Marcos’ 90th birthday celebration in the Philippines […]

Seasons (pre-din) | Distortions of a CellForwind (CD/DL) If within the first few moments of Distortion of a Cell one is not enraptured by the rhythmic noise and pulsating mechanical beats, listeners may have neglected the grand contemplative noise that Seasons (pre-din) generates in this cathartic odyssey.  The first three tracks evolve in a theme […]

Four phenomenal experimental electronic albums from around the globe all release on Friday October 25th, 2019, oh – that’s today!   Giulio Aldinucci | No Eye Has an Equal99 Chants (CS/DL) No Eye Has an Equal by Giolio […]
