Lucy and Rrose team up for an EP on the former’s Stroboscopic Artefacts label, opening with the mind warping ‘Chloroform’ which has more in common with the psycho-acoustic effects of extreme computer music than it does with your average slab of techno fodder. Still this is most certainly techno, although I’m sure legions of folk that think a 4/4 kick drum is a prerequisite of techno would beg to differ. It’s a huge spiralling/ filtering/ mutating sound that leaps out of the speakers, which at its climatic, most intense peak feels like it’s actually going to consume me. Whole.
If it’s percussion you seek, then fear not. ‘Peeling’ is propelled by a plodding rhythm and multiple layers of bleeps, gaseous atmospheric washes and intricate, futuristic sounds and some seriously rumbling sub bass. The general sci-fi feel isn’t dissimilar to something off of Planetary Assault Systems recent ‘Arc Angel’ album smudged up with the grubby sound of Steve Bicknell’s Lost Recordings circa 1996.
Over on the flipside ‘Stained Glass’ moves steadily with bell chimes and effervescent synth, while ‘Foil Gardens’ is eerie, fuzzy edged drone that dispenses with the beats. The sum of which makes for a nicely varied EP.
