9/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 30 October 2012
Here’s a soundtrack to a film which hasn’t been finished yet, which will apparently be “a highly esoteric science fiction labyrinth in the silhouette of Phillip K Dick meets William S Burroughs”, which sounds promising. Anyway, since this film has been in the works for six years and counting, a soundtrack LP has already been recorded and released by the trio of Sasha Grey (I’m sure I’ve heard that name somewhere before), Ian Cinnamon and Pablo St Francis, claiming it “should be heard as a separate but yet equal vehicle to the film”. Cool.
Anyway, on to the record itself, it’s a dark, enveloping odyssey of throbbing analogue drone and cosmic flutter from the Carpenter school of slow-burning synth dread (particularly reminding me of the understated and hypnotic Halloween III soundtrack in places), primarily made with an ARP Odyssey and an ARP 2600, tape loops, dodgy effects pedals and “unusual acoustic instruments” (none of which are prominent enough in the sound for me to place).At times it gets slightly industrial with washes of white noise and over a distant low grind, others there’s a stabbing, morphing analogue pulse, elsewhere there’s intermittent, echoed bass drum throbs over quiet, dubby, patient melodic interplay and a low doom-drone, but they impress me most at their most minimal, with a drawn out subtly shifting bass pulse with spacey, minimal ornamentation giving way to space squiggles towards the end of the album that rise out of the gloom like the Aurora Borealis. If you were into the recent Geoff Barrow/Ben Salisbury DROKK collaboration I reckon you’ll really enjoy this. It all sounds pure and minimal and enveloping and relaxing without ever staying in the same place too long.
