Indignant Senility – Plays Wagner (Type) 2010

Boomkat recently had a sale on all their Type stock. I had a field day and picked up shitloads of fantastic records which I never knew existed. All I really wanted to buy when I logged into Boomkat was Black to Comm’s Alphabet 1968 but ended up with so much more. One of the records that I took a punt on and that has ended up changing the way I listen to music is Indignant Senility’s Plays Wagner. Indignant Senility is one of the projects of Pat Maherr who is probably more well know for his DJ Screw inspired deconstruction of obscure gangsta rap in Expressway Yo-Yo Dieting. In both projects he uses the same set up to create something both haunting and a little creepy. On Plays Wagner he brings his technique to classical music  and fucks with it until it loses all form and structure. It is a remarkable record that requires close listening because the clouds of what is kind of halfway to a dark ambient experience sometimes part to reveal the source material.  As the genre of noise stagnates I’m finding myself more drawn to these types of records and if you’re in the same position as me I reckon you should probably listen to this.
