Here’s a split 12” by a couple of characters who I’m not entirely unfamiliar with. Italian synth siren Mushy’s recent album was very enthusiastically received by our Brian, and she was quite heavily involved in the recent Ruth album too, while Meddicine is Monika who runs SixSixSixties and did a split 12” with golden repeato lads Vision Fortune a few months back.
Starting with Mushy’s side, then. She’s laying down some darkly seductive gothy driftpop with skittery beats, synths that pulse and drone ominously, and then her blurred, distant vocals coating everything in a film of sticky grease. It’s like some kind of queasy nightmare about Burial producing a Sapphire Slows record while Zola Jesus and John Carpenter sit around smoking blunts and offering advice. You didn’t eat too much cheese, though; this is really happening.
Over on the other side Meddicine is doing something with similar dark synth textures but on more of a repeato tip, seemingly taking cues from Berlin bunker techno and more intense Throbbing Gristle-esque industrial grit for a frosty trio of head-nodders with hard crunchy beats and droney hypnotic synth loops. It’s pretty intense in places. It sounds like the soundtrack to people running around a maze of tunnels being chased by shadowy monsters. Jittery and dark. Both sides of this record are good.
