“The difficult third album has been replaced with the undifferentiated 14th CD-R. What happened to the thrill of the new? Hearing something you never conceived might exist and knowing it’s exactly what you always needed to hear.”

I love this bit of writing by Nick Southgate in the Wire because it neatly sums up how I often feel. The thing about continuing this blog and trying new things and expanding musical and sound horizons is that ever now and then I hit absolute fucking gold. A record that worked like a sonic ear syringe. In fact one of the best releases in the last couple of years. It’s a droning, post rock, field recording, distortion,noise fest. Equally terrifying and beautiful. Just listen to these two clips and tell me I’m wrong.
