Kindohm: Zero Likes (naboamusic, 2016)

Kindohm: Zero Likes

Kindohm: Zero Likes

This is post-social music. This is music for constantly checking social media and receiving no new notifications. This is music for putting your entire life into something and never being sure if anyone is paying attention to what you’re doing. This is music for wondering if there’s some sort of faulty algorithm causing your posts or messages to go unseen or unread. This is music for holding back on saying something because you don’t want to make anyone feel unpleasant, but then rarely ever saying anything. This is music for making you seriously question if you should delete or at least take a very long break from social media. This is music for vaguebooking. This is music for hating memes, and pop culture in general. This is music for getting sick of impersonal business-related emails from people who don’t know you or care about how you feel. This is music for hating small talk but not knowing how to make a meaningful connection with anyone. This is music for having it make all the difference when someone actually does take interest, and being convinced that there is a reason you’re doing all of this. This album was produced using live coding and is a free download from naboamusic. And it’s amazing.

Evil Robot Ted: Project Iceworm Volume One (Brokecore, 2016)

Evil Robot Ted: Project Iceworm Volume One

Evil Robot Ted: Project Iceworm Volume One

Far different from Evil Robot Ted’s more DHR-influenced work, this is a vivid album of decaying ambient/noise/rave loops. It’s silly to really call this ambient, as it’s so pumped up with crackling distortion. But he takes ambient synth pads you might associate with jungle tracks and fries them up until they’re smoking, and then loops them and phases them and pans them and adds additional mind-bleaching effects. Yes, we’ve heard the Lee Gambles of the world do “faded memories of jungle breakdowns but without the breakbeats” thing before, but this is different. There is a hazy nostalgia thing to it, but it’s more than that. It’s frazzled and hallucinatory and not forgiving or comfortable, but yet there’s still an unrestrained joy to it. A couple remixes near the end add beats, and they’re clever and complicated, but still not overwhelming and harsh. This is one of many remarkable ERT releases, and lucky for anyone who’s interested, it is a free download at Bandcamp!

DeLIEN: User Interface Rmx tape (Detroit Industrial/Void, 2016)

DeLIEN: User Interface Rmx tape

DeLIEN: User Interface Rmx tape

Last year, DeLIEN released an incredible tape called Identity Annex. This tape gathers a bunch of remixes of one of the tracks, and it tears the track apart in tons of different directions. The insanely talented Redhat from Philadelphia does some sort of opera/breakcore/Biggie mashup thing. Selector Catalogue’s mix is typically restless and explosive, but there is a short pause in the middle to reflect. Baseck’s is a bit more low-down and wompy, but there’s a ton of voices buried underneath, as well as some acid synths. Chris Samuels does a more straightforward industrial mix. Split Horizon slices it to bits with his twitchy, stammering version. Once you’ve listened to the original tape, check out this one on Bandcamp.

Dylan Cameron: Infinite Floor LP (HoloDeck, 2016)

Dylan Cameron: Infinite Floor LP

Dylan Cameron: Infinite Floor LP

I have tons of promos sitting around on my hard drive that I keep meaning to review, and usually if I just don’t get around to something after a while, I just end up deleting it and moving on. I wanted to make sure I covered this one though, simply because the artist in question doesn’t get as much attention as some of his labelmates on HoloDeck, and also because this album is really good. It’s far closer to the dance music world than most other releases on the label, but it’s still nowhere near a conventional techno album. The tracks here are heavily atmospheric, yet still grounded with strong rhythms. Opener “Nebula” is an explosive jungle-ish track that seems to be bursting out of some sort of existential mind-trap. Other tracks are more subdued and rainy, but they still poke their heads out of the storm clouds and find a way to dance. This album is an exceptional fusion of optimism and melancholy that doesn’t resort to any of the “future” cliches present in much contemporary dance music. Check it out on Bandcamp.

v/a: Infrastructure Facticity (Infrastructure New York, 2016)

v/a: Infrastructure Facticity

v/a: Infrastructure Facticity

The first full-scale compilation from Function’s Infrastructure New York label is far more than what I was expecting it to be. I was assuming “techno compilation, cool, nbd” but it’s darker and deeper than that. Not entirely dark, though. Campbell Irvine’s opening track starts out tense and shivery but it eventually opens up, and keeps blossoming. Vatican Shadow’s track is typically brooding. Rrose’s track bounces off the walls, and seems charged by something radioactive. It isn’t until Cassegrain & Tin Man’s track when we get to proper, straightforward techno. A lot of the tracks are functional club cuts, sometimes with some acid, but then there’s more detached, spacey tracks like the ones by Post Scriptum or Efdemin. Function’s own “Low Lights & Trick Mirrors” is more bright and Detroit-y, and definitely one of the best tracks. “Colwyn Bay” by Function and Inland is similar, but longer, less upfront, and more IDM-y, and it’s also a highlight. The album ends with Silent Servant’s “End/Optimism”, which is a 2-minute hissy outro, but the title at least suggests that it’s meant to be positive. Also, it’s worth noting that the vinyl version has extended mixes of most of the tracks compared to the CD, stretching the total length to over 90 minutes.

AGF: Kon​:​3p>UTION to: e​[​VOL​]​ution (AGF Producktion, 2016)

AGF: Kon​:​3p>UTION to: e​[​VOL​]​ution

AGF: Kon​:​3p>UTION to: e​[​VOL​]​ution

Bzzzzzzrrrrrrpppt<<<thhhhhhhhxxx\\\\\\\ffffvvvv&&&&!!!!! AGF has released dozens of albums of weird glitch-poetry, and honestly most of them haven't made an impact on me. This one, though, was a giant electrifying jolt. I listened to this pumped up loud in my car on a road trip, and it was an erratic, paranoid, exciting trip into the unknown. Very broken, buzzing, deconstructed sound design. Abrupt shifts, vocals delivering abstract messages and sometimes struggling to connect logically, and some HARD kicks and static interruptions. This is a scrambled, top-secret classified document of an album. It's alarming and unfriendly and kind of terrifying, and it's amazing. Also recommended is the A-Symmetry album AGF and Natalie Beridze released two years ago.
