Abdul Sherzai: I Tried To Make Something Pretty tape

Very short tape of homemade synth and drum machine sounds. Waves floating around, bending, changing colors, and then having sudden seizures and crashing to the ground. “Family Shame Stain” is a loner sludge jam with supremely crushed, distortion-pumped beats and mumbled thoughts leaking out of his head and into broken pitchshifters. “Song of My Dream” is an outer space synth exploration, and then the prettiest melody (or hint of a melody) on the album ends up being the song where he mutters “You’re Fucking Dead” over a wobbly, trippy beat. He did try to make something pretty, and it still turned out ugly and corrupted and sinister, but it’s fine that way, really. Available at Bandcamp.
