Sujo: A Deeper Curse

Sujo is back!!! Not that he ever went away, he’s just mainly been releasing music under his own name, and it’s drifted towards clicky minimal techno. But here, he returns to his doomy guitar drone project, and it’s as glorious and bleak as ever. It seems to alternate between full-on noise squalls and calmer moments, such as the beginnings of “Lehi” and “Phosphorus”. There’s some vague rhythms holding the blustering drones together, but this music expresses a state of hopelessness that’s just impossible and futile to confine to a beat. The albums ends with the 17-minute title track, which was originally released as a digital bonus track in 2013, right before the project mysteriously went under the surface. It’s absolutely massive, just a giant wall of gray smoldering fire. Truly astounding. Totally what I need in my life right now. Behold the amazement at Bandcamp.
