The Vastness Is Bearable Only Through Love by Ensemble Economique

8/10 Mike 28 February 2013

Ensemble Economique, aka Starving Weirdo Brian Pyle, is back this week with another LP of his out-there synth explorations, with creepy minimal plinks, plonks, thuds and shudders inhabiting a bare-bones synthetic landscape, like an abandoned factory in a post-apocalyptic wasteland whose machines continue ticking over long after the last signs of life are gone. It’s reminding me a little of the skeletal synth creep-outs of Wolf Eye Nate Young’s solo work, all dead space and cold robotic throbs and drones.

Phil says it’s like an evil, oppressive take on ‘Flight Premonition’ by David Sylvian & Holger Czukay, but we’re talking serious dread-filled pant-browning soundscapes of pure synthetic dread here rather than the more therapeutic sounds on that record. Instead it’s a paranoid late-night spook-out which isn’t for the faint-hearted!
