9/10 Mike Staff review, 15 February 2013
This latest one from Vanity Case comes from Berlin-based Argentinian couple Mueran Humanos, who on ‘El Circulo’ mix a tribalistic mechanised stomp with hypnotic slow-building melodies and chanted vocals, building to a churning ritual-rock fug that recalls Hawkwind and Gnod’s techno experiments of the ‘80s and now respectively, mixed with a fist-pumping anthemic psych feel like a mechanical Goat. I wish I had a mechanical goat, it would save me from having to walk everywhere. I wonder if it would scream like a mechanical person.
On the other side ‘La Langosta’ is a meditative cosmic ballad with bass pulses, synth drones, chirping robot crickets and a slight new agey vibe, with some tasteful guitar twinkles and later on some queasy throbbing synth swells. It’s on 33 and goes on for ages, all blissed out like bvdub smoking some bongs with High Wolf in some tropical paradise, or Orfanado and Dead Can Dance in a foetal and monosyllabic opium haze. Well psychedelic. Smoke up dudes!
