I’m having a right rum old time trying to review stuff this morning because Business Lady and I are trying to review simultaneously and these headphones are quieter and bleedier than I’d like and I’m getting some kind of girly indie pop business swishing around off-puttingly in the distance. I just tried to review the new Kyle Bobby Dunn and it was literally impossible because it just sounded like indie pop with a drone on top, so I’ve opted to try and review something a bit louder and more active. And what better to distract me than this long-awaited newie from the acclaimed techno-jazz-kraut-dub-ambient fusion “supergroup” Moritz Von Oswald Trio?
On here Von Oswald, Delay, and Loderbauer plunge headlong into a spacious dub-techno soup with metronomic beats and boomy sub-bass accompanied by all manner of physical and electronic tinkerings, but it’s always spacious and somewhat subliminal, entering into the same wonky psychedelic soundworld as Sun Araw but with more of a straight, driving, repetitive kraut-dub techno pulse underpinning it all.
Another thing it’s making me think of is PiL if they sent Lydon home and had a heavy night on the bongs listening to Balam Acab. The soft, soothing tones of shimmering synth and brass are enough to wash anyone away into a blissed out chill trance of slack-jawed hypnotic head bobbing, but there’s an unpredictability and playfulness about the tones and details which will keep the more attentive listener guessing without getting skittery and annoying. The third song’s a bit funkier and probably the most danceable thing here, wouldn’t seem too out of place on the (amazing) new Shit & Shine album, the last one is a bit darker and has some weird cut up brass. It’s all great. Another massively impressive piece of work from these three professionals.
