- Misery Is A Communicable Disease by Vessel
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 October 2013
Phil has handed me a slew of 12” releases, too many to write about and many of them are annexes to recently released records. So in lieu of me telling you about Darkstar (a complete waste of time and space) and Machine Drum (good: but see album review for description) I’ll have a listen to Vessels. Actually it's not Vessels as they peddle terrifyingly over-elaborate progressive post rock. Instead Vessel (no ‘S’ - clever eh?) produces a brand of dark electronica which (as Phil also pointed out on a previous review) jumps right out at you and you find yourself liking it straight away.
The main track is really great, the beats are not unlike prime Autechre and the synths although dark a dead tuneful. It reminds me of a lot of the electronica I listened to back when I was a bairn but brings something new, grainy and very ‘Tri Angle’ to the table. On the flip, the opening track ‘VMI’ consists of low end distorted beat-work and matches it to some very squeaky, very peculiar synths. The track drives along, as muddy as a cows backside. Finally ‘Not For Design’ peddles a kind of slick droney-techno groove with shards of noise scattered across. But it's the A side you’ll pop back to again and again, really rather good.
