Innercity presents his catchily titled new record, ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Child), a dense and messy sound-wall that is ostensibly ambient, but practically a lot closer to noise. Textures all over the shop, generated with guitars and violins and put through big racks of something heavy. LP on Further Records.

7/10 Laurie Staff review, 26 August 2015

Chloe Harris’ Further Records introduces seasoned anti-musician Innercity’s latest LP, named after the key-smashed results of an angry encounter with an internet troll. The first word on the micro description on the sleeve is ‘uncompromising’; let the trauma commence.

A chamber ensemble of guitars and violins are scarred by torturous noise practices, taking the form of a harsh scald rather than the honest, pastoral tones usually associated with them. ‘Post apocalpytic’ - yeah, you could say that… Take for example the introductory tones of ‘Baal’s (Kitten Trumpeteer Choir)’, which could go either way after the high-pitched youthful parps of the ‘kittens’ (violins), but chooses to throw subtlety to the wind, take no prisoners, and pile on the distortion til the kittens screech. While side 1 is an exercise in pure minor abrasion, things get a bit more legible on the second side but equally as rough-hewn. A looped sample underpins most of ‘In Abra and Umbra’, allowing Hans Dens to introduce various extremities over the drone.

A similar, more frail version of this follows with even more space for variation, before the final brutal moments pound through walls of noise. It’s an interesting dark ambient LP that suffers a little from having only 1 flavour of noise, but is still a good example of altered instrumentation.
