Quttinirpaaq: Dead September LP (Rural Isolation Project, 2015)

April 1, 2015 at 9:59 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment

Austin noise-punks Quttinirpaaq follow both of their 2013 LPs on Rural Isolation Project with a third one. This is bleeding-noise industrial electronic rock, with sheets of noisy guitar pushing far beyond Psychocandy levels of harshness. There’s usually a drum machine bashing away, and vocals are distorted far beyond any semblance of comprehensibility. It sounds like punk rock thrown violently into a paper shredder with no fucks given. “Dead Birds” starts out not as noisy, with an almost pleasant sounding drum/guitar loop, but it keeps going on forever and gets drowned out by obscene levels of noise and distortion, before cutting off suddenly, “I Want You/She’s So Heavy” style. “Lifestyles USSR” goes on forever too, with rumbling, thudding rhythms surrounded by computer glitches. “Spine Tree” has a techno beat buried underneath the noise, and another sharp ending. “Walk Into The Sea” has more of a sludge-metal tempo, and seems to have more of a proper ending, even as the sludge takes over the metal. I can’t find cover art online, so I guess it’s not actually out yet, but keep tuned to their Bandcamp and I’m sure it’ll be up pretty soon.
