MV Carbon: The Sun Will Turn On You LP (Discombobulate, 2016)June 22, 2016 at 10:43 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
MV Carbon was half of noise duo Metalux (not sure if they’re around anymore) and she’s been doing solo stuff for at least a decade or so. Her set at Trip Metal Fest was a highlight of the weekend, and this album is similar to the music she performed. Sort of broken abstract industrial synth-pop, with sinister electronics and handmade beats which don’t follow traditional patterns. Lyrics are about dreams, catching spells, and escaping, and they’re delivered in a voice which is equally cute and creepy. This is really good and worth checking out.
