This is the new LP from Martin Kuchen, who we in the office have established is a very serious man. You won’t find anything to smile about on this here record, it’s specifically and relentlessly bleak, dedicated “to the American author Thomas Goodrich and to the voiceless victims of the world’s worst war”.

It opens with glacial ambient hiss over which we hear desolate squeaks which eventually settle to grief-drenched breathy saxophone, draping a mournful muted melodicism over an atmosphere of seething buzz and malevolent hiss. It conjures up mournful landscapes of strange, haunted emptiness; of the presence of death.

It’s peaceful and distant but also disarmingly intimate and human, in places seeming like a struggle for musician and listener alike but constantly engaging and chillingly moving. If you’re looking for a record to turn your upside-down frown upside-down, you’ve come to the right place.
