The increasingly erratic Sub Pop this week give us this bit of churning, snotty kraut-industrial madness by His Electro Blue Voice - their debut LP after a string of EPs on supercool labels like Sacred Bones and Holidays Records. Opener ‘Death Climb’ is something of a statement of intent, with a wall of clamouring noise fighting against some unhinged yelled vocals.

This is the theme throughout much of the album but they do cool things off for some melodic krauty indie chugging which reminds me of Cold Pumas, only to burst back into life with a violent vigour like the Murder City Devils playing a Cold Cave covers set. Despite the aggression of their wall-of-sound delivery the song structures and arrangements are clearly quite considered and there’s a strange kind of Echo & The Bunnymen-ish melodicism to the whole thing. I wasn’t sure about the barking vocals at first but by the end I’ve really warmed to their all-in style. A clever mixture of noise rock, goth and shoegaze presented in a relentlessly OTT fashion. Pretty cool.
