If this release is anything like his previous releases then we're in for a little bit of a treat, again. Max Loderbauer is so good at building suspense, whilst causing you to have a minor mental breakdown at every element of life around you when listening to his music. Greyland is a six-track 12" that is released on Marionette.
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 16 November 2017
Really unusual and often quite scary electronics here from Max Loderbauer. Then opening 'Corner' sounds like someone has left a drum machine on whilst an increasing amount of gas escapes from a waste disposal pipe. That's all it does but it ramps up the tension for 'Undercurrent' - a slow burning repetition of some low end synths which fritter and fracture as if whiled around by helicopter blades.
Loderbauer here provides six quite disparate examples of how repeating tones can create a sense of quiet. Each track is unique to the previous but listened to as a whole the same atmosphere pervades the entire release. He only uses beats once on the quietly gorgeous 'Who's That Born' and even then they are tiny, but this is a beautiful track of massively understated electronica. Elsewhere he swirls tones around like paint and despite the eerie soundscapes this is a quite wonderfully soothing release.
