LXV: Clear LP

LXV: Clear LP

So according to Discogs, this guy used to be Current Amnesia (a name I always heard but never saw or listened to, even though he’s done splits with people I used to know), and he was also in Car Commercials, who I saw in a New Brunswick basement once and didn’t think were very good. This is something else entirely. Bizarre shredded voices, granulated textures, ghostly murmurings, nervous transformations. It’s supposed to be about the aftermath of a psychotic experience, but it feels like such an experience itself. On “Pripyat (Paper Crown)” it sounds like scrambled voices are raining down sporadically from the sky. And then “Apophenia” ends up sounding like what might’ve been an intimate jazz piece or folk song caught in a digital washing machine. Very intense and chaotic, there’s so much going on, and it doesn’t make sense in the conventional way, but it’s truly fascinating.
