This is this LA quartet’s debut album on Desire so I’ve no idea what to expect. What I’m getting is a brand of post-punky coldwave with icy synths and percussive post-industrial aspects, somewhere between Cold Cave and a guitarless Joy Division, which sometimes veers into tribalistic synth-led neofolk territory. I’m enjoying it actually, it has a good energy and tension to it despite (or perhaps thanks to) its insistent bad vibes and coldly crushing dynamics.

Apparently they’ve got a split on the way with The KVB, whose murky post-industrial darkpop is well matched with this ominous, throbbing aesthetic. I’m particularly impressed with ‘Charles Joseph Whitman’, where an insistent Ed Schrader-ish beat is pummelled by bursts of heavily distorted, buzzing synths which evoke a mounting sense of panic and skittish paranoia. There’s a cold, terrifying emptiness and repetition to the sound in places, like Suicide, but the blown out and playful tones are often more Throbbing Gristle-esque. It’s cool and patient, but always threatening violence. Strong stuff.
