With synthesizers that wobble around industrial beats slowed down 300%, INIT’s self-titled debut is heavy and unnerving. Vocals like a vague memory of what it means to be human, and their dissonant accompaniments, create a strangely organic sound which, in term, highlights the occasional moments of unadulterated beauty.

Its a 12” innit? Yup it is. I’ve got the sides mixed up so let’s start again. Opener ‘Talking About Talking’ is a dark piece of ambience with the most unusual two step beat which lollops along like a man with one leg. Eerie vocals come into the mix and I’m actually quite frightened. The CPI mix of the same mix is barely recognisable with a completely different beat, a more acidy gloop - ah the vocals are kept but that’s it. Overleaf ‘Blackbird’ (not the Paul McCartney classic) is a more acidy affair but again with eerie voices repeating over the mix. There’s Willie Burns and Cliff Lothar mixes too and I’m running out of time.
