- Impossible Symmetry by Helm
1 review. Write a review for us »
Floppy-haired London funster Luke Younger has matured from his youthful days as a Light! Alive!, through his numerous Birds Of projects, into a proper highbrow grown up with records on Pan and everything. This LP is called ‘Impossible Symmetry’ (or Symmerty if you go by the inner sleeve) and it’s a voyage into a cosmic cavern of dark ambient creaks and groans and rumbles.
It’s pretty immersive stuff actually, with lots of organic tones, bassy synth plops and breathy swirling rumblings offset by eerie reverbed chimes and strained high-pitched boiling-kettle trumpet(?) squeaks in a shifting, morphing, coagulating mass of creepy tones.
Flip it and you get a buzzing sound like an electric fence with some dark, murky mechanical bottom end, then there’s a series of big metallic clangs, then there’s a bit of fluttering treble and panicky rumbles accompanying some bubbling noises, then there’s some ace cosmic John Carpenteresque synth drones, and then some more weird morphing Coily dark ambience to close. It’s kind of making me think of a more acoustic-sound-focused take on the hypnotic rumblings coming out of Decimus at the moment, and of course it’s got the usual mega-swish Pan artwork.
