"...it’s two fellas from berlin improvising and overdubbing till their smoke-stained german hearts are content. imagine a futuro-james ellroy.(...)
how do they do it? overdubbing a series of bohren and der club of gore-esque improvs atop atop atop one another. sounds like some elseworld version of bernard herrmann at times, where they’ve dug up his corpse, attached him to some turntables playing the taxi driver score and fed electricity through it.
it’s all very scratchy and late-night creepy. a real feeling of abandonment, of the horror of urban sprawl. all very 3am berlin, barely warmed with jagermeister and the skeletal rattle of the u-bahn acting as post-club metronome to ringing ears as you traipse through empty snow streets with only graffiti to semiotically, metaphysically and fearfully guide you.
with sampled sneezing. y’know.
hands down the best shit i’ve listened to this weekend.
zum flughafen bitte!"
