Hacker Farm are a Somerset collective of experimental electronic mavericks who have been raising all the right eyebrows lately with their spooky glitchtronic pastoral weirdness. In my haste to listen to all the other records I actually missed out on last year’s debut, but their new offering ‘UHF’ has sucked me right in to their demonic psychotronic soundworld.
The textures on this mysterious CD range from the creaking, pulsating dark electronic ambience of ‘Burlington’, full of chilling drips and drones and a spooky speech sample, to layered, looping, haunted industrial dance numbers that sound like the BBC Radiophonic Workshop haunted by the malevolent future ghosts of Pye Corner Audio and Factory Floor. In ‘The Death Of The Real’ there’s a sheet-metal drone and deconstructed samples which bring to mind Throbbing Gristle and the dysphronic dreadscapes of Decimus.
Everything is broken, patched together, partially obscured, constantly slipping just beyond your grasp, and it has quite an intoxicating effect. Amidst the lo-fi chaos there’s all manner of distractions rattling around and you’ll still be noticing new things several listens in. Messed up ear drugs for adventurous sound hounds.
