With my regular partner in review crime Mike taking a well-earned break this week, I’ve got a hard day’s reviewing ahead of me, starting with this Cannibal Movie LP ‘Mondo Music’, which has two long pieces for drums and organ stretched over two sides of vinyl. It was just a tape originally but people liked it so much that now it’s an LP too.

The Italian duo’s sound is one of blown-out wibbly analogue and clattering drum rituals, sometimes driving through swathes of hypnotic desert drones, elsewhere bathing in exotic repeated melodic shapes all drenched in distortion and reverb and tape dirt like the unholy child of Weekends and Mucky Sailor engaging in Master Musicians of Bukkake-esque rituals. It’s droney and hypnotic but it’s also visceral, loud, and often threatening to fall apart.

On ‘Mondo Music (I)’ the drums are especially loud and prominent, pounding hypnotically away through a series of movements, while on ‘Mondo Music (II) the organ takes the fore in a gently morphing ritual while the drums gently keep time underneath. If you like lo-fi analogue tones and ceremonial-sounding repetition, you might also be into this.
