Chris Pottinger: Stagnant Secretion LP

No longer using the name Cotton Museum, Chris Pottinger is still making nauseous, swaying synth creations, along with illustrations of ghoulish, vein-covered monsters to match. Stagnant Secretion is his latest, featuring 6 compositions for Buchla modular synthesizer along with echo and delay units. This one has a little bit more of a tense horror soundtrack vibe to it, and it’s definitely not as noisy has some of his other albums. His sound has always been too different and original to really categorize as “noise” anyway, but the same can be said about lots of artists associated with the noise scene. On the second side, “Parasite Lure” is particularly brain-warping, going into some Forbidden Planet-type modulations and abstractions. Another perfect-for-Halloween record from Mr. Pottinger, and not to be missed.
