- Precession by Anthroprophh
8/10 Mike Staff review, 13 May 2014
Here's the second Cardinal Fuzz offering for the week. This one is the sophomore LP from The Heads' Paul Allen's Anthroprophh, and this time his touring rhythm section, aka Big Naturals, seem to have become a proper fixture in the band rather than merely peripheral players.
On side A we have 'Precession (Retrograde)' which opens with some long, wibbling analogue synth drones in a single swirling John Carpenter dread-chord, with a primal churning drum groove that appears as a barely perceptible distant putter and gradually eases its way into the mix, before finally Allen's wickedly distorted guitar comes in, first with subtle little drones and details, but eventually settling into some meandering Heads-meet-Comets on Fire shred. It's cosmic and hypnotic but with a nice little touch of dirtiness to it, eventually disintegrating into a noisy barrage of screeching synth dischord and crackling guitar distortion.
'Ebbe' follows a fairly similar formula, with wavering synth drones and bubbling repeato rhythms takig the fore at the start. This time there's an eastern-sounding repeated melody in the mix too, and shuddering trails of feedback right from the outset along with a wonky head-noddy somewhat Liebezeit-esque drum groove, once again building slowly and subtly into a full-blown cosmic rock-out.
Proper spacey business with lots of wibbly synth drones, you probably already know you'll like it or you wouldn't be here.
