Been in a state of stasis recently whilst journeying through the universe of new sounds...some good; but mostly tres ordinary.
My soundtrack has been...
Dalglish - Ideom (recordlabelrecords)
Monolithic, mental, steam-powered, digitally perverse. polanski-esque, menacing trip switch flicked, mice in a machine, rattling...........
((System off line))

Histrionic singing and glacial synths are my bag. So i got hold of this recently and can't stop playing it.

There is a lot i could say about this but....i won't. The music should do the talking for me.
Anyhoo if you like downbeat MBV, Godspeed style Joy Division-esque doom mongering (like i do) buy this.

Also it said in the press release that it should be filed under "Strange Electronic Music" (??!!) or "Experimental" (Double ??!!) What isn't nowadays.
So I took a step back from the tie-dye packaging and dodgy wordplay (Like i can talk) and used my ears.
It's really lovely! It is not experimental cos it ain't improvised. The varied sounds are clipped, stretched and manipulated quite beautifully. The production is excellent and has that Kompact sound (The Field, Gui Borratta etc) though obviously not as kraut. The experience reminds me of Pantha Du Prince and the Animal Collective eating sherbert together with the Gescom crew barging in and necking lots of cheap wine. What a party!!
Lot's of sonic pieces all cleverley stitched together to create a warm, intriguing and rewarding listenable listen.

Fuck buttons? Yes indeed!!! They are freakin top...
Fuck Buttons was conceived by Andrew Hung & Benjamin John Power in the winter of 2004, Bristol UK.
Initially the group was born as an outlet for their nihilistic-noise tendencies but quickly, the two Fuck Buttons realised they could harness the use of noise as a tool to immerse and evoke. No longer afraid of melody or rhythm, the group started fusing all these elements to the point when drone becomes melody becomes rhythm.
With their electric live performances sealing the notion that the two Fuck Buttons are attempting some kind of transcendence between the listener and the Universe itself, one could easily envisage one’s psyches being shaken by the very rumbles of the earth’s motions.
Tribal beats and subtle beautiful melodies weave amongst contorting Technicolor drone-scapes while preaching distorted-vocals scream for dear hope herself…
Fuck Buttons straddle you between the wall of sound that lies between the beginning of destruction and the end of birth. This grand noise will fondle you into a state of immersed euphoria. From ATP website.
