Pivotal: Operation Sound Invasion tape (Visual Disturbances/Emergency Tapes, 2015)July 4, 2016 at 12:55 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
No excuse for not getting to this one sooner. Five Star Hotel-affiliated Emergency Tapes/Visual Disturbances has been releasing an astonishing amount of work exploring rhythmic noise, juke, breakcore, grime, and all manners of intense, all-consuming sound. This is a dangerous, deadly, paranoid transmission from a top-secret bunker. Five Star makes an appearance, right after the raggacore-leaning “Nightmare Dive”. Even the tracks doing the deconstructed post-club thing are spiky and breaky. This one has too many angles to describe in detail and doing so would ruin the sense of surprise and shock anyway. A must-listen at Bandcamp.
