Mythomaniacs Are Right – There Is No Such Thing As Death, Life Is Only A Dream And We Are The Imagination Of OurselvesPosted: February 23, 2012
The ridiculously long album title and the cover might suggest some inspiration by the LA post-rock dudes from Red Sparowes, but in fact there is no connection at all – because there is no rock at all. There Is No Such Thing… is a sparse, absolutely minimal album inspired (among others) by German electronic music, both old new and new: on one side, there are obsessive tape loops and musique concrete which channel the spirit of late master Karlheinz Stockhausen; on the other side there is an obvious glitch worship element, which make the tracks sound like a more ambient-treated, detailed Alva Noto at times. There’s also an obvious influence of minimalism, somtimes whimsical, sometimes ominous. Disorienting and challenging, just how I like my experimental electronics.
