Tang Soleil: Outboard Sensory Meridian Response LP (Dusty Medical Records, 2015)

Tang Soleil: Outboard Sensory Meridian Response LP

Tang Soleil: Outboard Sensory Meridian Response LP

Really bizarre, fun acid-fried rock’n’roll from Montreal. The vocals are always mangled by effects, at times sounding like Longmont Potion Castle produced the album. The band loves exploring the possibilities of the recording studio, banging out wild psych-rock riffs and then abruptly shifting (Mothers-style) to whispering voices, spoken word interludes, and revving motorcycle sounds. The songs are generally short and transition into other ones without warning, making each side of the record sound like a suite rather than a collection of individual songs. It’s kind of a “what was THAT?” record, but not in an offputting way. Kind of reminds me of a young Flaming Lips, but if they just kept to making 2 minute psych-pop songs with standard rock instruments and blown-out effects. Really warped and nutty, with splattering guitar sounds and goofy voices, but there’s also a bit of a reverence to the silly side of ’50s and ’60s rock and roll, with references to “Purple People Eater” and “Woolly Bully”. The album is short and packs a weird, squishy punch, and that does it a world of good.

Tyvek: Blunt Instrumental 3 tape (Doubles Tapes, 2015)

Tyvek: Blunt Instrumental 3 tape

Tyvek: Blunt Instrumental 3 tape

Tyvek haven’t released a proper album since 2012’s well-received On Triple Beams; since then, they’ve sporadically issued limited cassettes of practices and live gigs. This is the first Tyvek release in many years to feature WCBN’s own Shelley Salant (Shells, Rebel Kind, a billion other bands/projects). On the first side, she and Kevin Boyer plug away on some repetitive, meditative improvs for guitar, drums, and bass, and it actually quite resembles Shells more than Tyvek, especially considering how Boyer’s voice is kind of shunted into a corner for only a few moments near the end of the side. The second side is more Tyvek-y, with razor-sharp guitar riffage and bleeding treble-bass surrounding Boyer’s lyrics about city dreaming, free states, and past futures. The electrified stomp-throb of “Shattered Channels” is the easy highlight.

Mike Dehnert/Roman Lindau/Sascha Rydell: 8 Years Fachwerk 2LP (Fachwerk, 2015)

Mike Dehnert/Roman Lindau/Sascha Rydell: 8 Years Fachwerk 2LP

Mike Dehnert/Roman Lindau/Sascha Rydell: 8 Years Fachwerk 2LP

The three artists of the Berlin-based Fachwerk label come together for this cohesive compilation, which is threaded together by short interludes filled with conversations and murmurings. The tracks range from dubby and minimal to more playful and wonky, with Mike Dehnert’s “Beiwerk” recalling Luciano at his harshest/trippiest, and easily being the standout track of the album. Sascha Rydell’s tracks have a more calm, reflective aura than the other artists’, but they still have driving beats along with the swirling, dubby synths. Mike Dehnert’s “Rewerk” is another storming epic.

Dreamcrusher: Hackers All of Them Hackers tape (Fire Talk, 2015)

Dreamcrusher: Hackers All of Them Hackers tape

Dreamcrusher: Hackers All of Them Hackers tape

Dreamcrusher continues to be one of the most intense artists on the planet with his newest EP. There’s just nobody else who combines scorching, electrified noise with beats the way this guy does. It’s just unreal how powerful his music is. And on this one, he adds a greater presence of vocals, even if they’re buried and hard to make out. Even still, they clearly express lost, confused, empty, shut-out emotions. Tracks like “Adore” come closer to realizing the sort of noise-rave sound he’s been going for. Pulverizing.

Thore Pfeiffer: Im Blickfield

Thore Pfeiffer: Im Blickfield

This one almost passed me by this year, but I’m glad I got a copy before the year ended because it’s pretty astonishing. I’m seriously glad that Kompakt decided to start a series of Pop Ambient artist albums this year, as the compilation series is reliably excellent, and the label’s more ambient-leaning releases are usually the best things on the label. This album’s looping ambient pieces are understated but still kind of surreal and trippy. There’s something cut-up and sophisticated about it, but it’s still relaxed and soothing. He seems to utilize a lot of strange electro-acoustic textures, but packaged into accessible, shimmering pieces which are easy to get into. Simply stunning, one of the year’s best ambient albums.
