Available as either 12” Vinyl or CD. Shlohmo’s 2nd album is a push past his usual sound, venturing into almost post-IDM/rock territory. Shlohmo himself Citing Burzum and Boards of Canada and signposts for this album is pretty on point, I’d also add the slower darkened cold 80s tones of oOoOO and other slow witchhouse into the mix.
6/10 Cai Sumption Customer review, 11th May 2015
Having jumped from stylistic trend to trend on previous efforts since the late 2000's, I was very much interested to hear what Shlohmo would deliver this year given the lack of any immediate genre fads. With no apparent musical fashions to fall back on, what Shlohmo offers on this record may well be the most organic form of self expression he has released to date. However, despite its very brooding and dark nature, this record seems to fall short thanks to a general lack of musical ideas, with sounds and motifs repeating all too often throughout the entirety of this album.
