How about that, there's still people out there making post-rock. This is good stuff, too, starting pleasantly enough and then getting a bit crushing with a real dark ambient rumble in the background as the ominous chords and searing high pitched guitar build into a thunderous stew. It's a genre that often is better suited to longer formats but 'Black Dunes' seems perfectly suited to a 7”. On the other side the brilliant Holy Other offer their mix of 'Woman in the Dunes'...I can't figure out if this is a mix of the 'Black Dunes' track on the A side that's been renamed because the mix is unrecognisable from the source material, or if they've got another track called 'Woman in the Dunes' that actually does sound like this. Either way, this mix is totally brilliant, starting with a stuttering little groove based around tiny vocal samples and then morphing into a ghostly techno monster with ethereal synth sweeps and minimal beats and gorgeously understated electronic melodies. My only problem with this mix is that it could go on for much longer without outstaying its welcome, but you've always gotta keep 'em wanting more, right? I just played it three times in a row and I'm only stopping now because I don't want to piss off the rest of the office. The A side would just be a four but the Holy Other mix pushes this 7” up to a comfortable five stars from me.
