8/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 March 2017Such is the interest in 80’s horror synth soundtracks that the well of original recordings has begun to run somewhat dry and so a bunch of people have found the only way to alleviate the situation is to make their own music. Novel. Now I’m no fan of 80’s horror synth but I’m enjoying this record by Burningtapes. It could because tracks like ‘Eva’ have a pulsing and pulsating feel to them with a ‘live band’ sound reminiscent of what Mogwai could come up with if they pushed themselves further in this direction. Elsewhere there’s enough fizzy synths to reach your weekly fill level but ‘Don’t Ask His Name’ exemplifies that it’s not just about how fizzy they can make the synth, they use post rock dynamics to plummet the track downwards on a really infectious ‘chorus’ as synths and guitars buzz about each other. I like the fact that guitars are here too - welcome. It’s kind of as if John Carpenter formed a post rock band. the dynamics on stuff like ‘Her Bones’ is really great - a tangled web of pulsating sounds bouncing around your ears. And it rocks.....kinda.
