- Monad by Bruce Gilbert
8/10 Brian Staff review, 11 August 2011
These freaking things, they are sent to torment me surely? Always too short to really unfurl round your mind, you are left trying to describe a pulse or a metallic whirr for 3-4 lines. I recently heard 'The Shivering Man' by this ex-Wirester and rather liked what I was hearing. This 'Monad' though? It's an austere, dystopian double-slice of brittle electro minimalism if ever I heard one! This is so not a party starter. The thing I like most about the 'Ingress' side is the throaty electronic echo, like the heartbeat of a machine, then you get the panning cyborgian scree but my favourite bit is surely the demented drunken disembodied w(h)irring in the far background. 'Re-edit' is basically a knuckle sandwich of monging, slightly highly-strung frequencies having a maudlin sing-a-long. Probably to commemorate another machines death from too much ink and data leakage. This record is quite an eerie little bastard. Does that mean I like it? Erm....yes, actually, I do.
