Pete Yellow Swanson is back again making some more weird noises, and this time he’s on Mexican Summer. He’s making some distorted electronic sounds, lots of farty blown out throbbing noises and insidious beats which develop into some kind of nightmarish techno freak-out which is pulsatingly intense and aggressively grating, all crunch and flutter and screech, looped and spliced into a tense and claustrophobic electronic wig-out, which is strangely hypnotic as it pulsates and lurches and loops feverishly into a surprisingly danceable cacophony.
At times it can be a challenging listen but Swanson does well treading that fine line between aggressive saturated noise and intricate, propulsive, fractured techno hypnosis for a kind of punishing mechanical euphoria, like if Throbbing Gristle got really into acid house. Side-long closer ‘Life Ends At 30’ has that kind of driving-into-the-sunset uplift that you get from Fuck Buttons at their best moments. Some might say it resembles a really loud rave recorded on a crappy mobile phone but they’re probably missing the point.
