Sudden Infant – Psychotic Einzelkind (Blossoming Noise) 2009

I’ve wanted to get a Sudden Infant record for a while. When Carlos Giffoni wears your T-shirt and Daniel Menche links to your blog there is a good chance that suckers like me will notice and end up buying your  record. This came out last year and guess how many “Best of” lists it made? On my trawl of the interwebs: fuck all. That makes little sense because listening to Psychotic Einezelkind has to be one of the most pleasurable music experiences I’ve had this year. The music here (and yes it’s not just noise) is great. The opening track was like a cross between Gallon Drunk and Wolf Eyes with some Neubaten-like percussive abuse. The sort of goth-like Skullflower stuff that that bloke from Astral Social Club dismisses but I love. In fact the tracks for the most part are full of menacing bass with drone and noise elements thrown in for good measure. Despite its musical inclination this  record  has  moments which remind me that his bloke is almost European noise royalty  especially on the second track Deep Cuts which has that rolling sand storm of noise effect that Merzbow does so well. This is the record that no one heard last year and that’s a fucking travesty.
