- Relief by Kevin Drumm
8/10 Phil Staff review, 02 November 2012
I’ve always been a little scared of Kevin Drumm records. When they’ve been played before in the office they’ve always either scared me or done my nut in so I’ve tended to steer clear of ‘em. I’m at a point in my musical life where I can listen to anything at the mo so here I am testing the waters again.
Chicago’s noisy son is back with a new album on Editions Mego. Well it’s more of a 12” as it plays at 45rpm but you get 2 long songs (I say songs in the loosest meaning of the word and they total 36 minutes so it’s long enough to be an album). To the untrained ear this would just seem like a total cacophony of frequencies and fuzz. I guess that’s essentially what it is but within the fuzz are intricate layers of noise which interweave to create a unique sonic experience. Deep within the harsh frequencies and walls of distortion are warm sounding melodies which make the whole thing listenable. It’s not an easy listen at all but it’s one that will pay dividends to those into the noisier side of things. I’m strangely fascinated by noise music and this album is tweaking my fascination nipple (my left one).
