Vampire Slayer – Psychic HexPosted: April 13, 2013
Shimmering, metallic drones from the Vampire Slayer, also known under his birth name Valentin Torres. Eight spells (or maybe rather: hexes) on the album shift the mood between dark and dangerous to trippy and futuristic. Mysterious, heavy echoes roll like thick clouds in the back while the leading synthesizers try to find their way through the electronic maze. The high point here is the closing “Window Peeping”, a hazy, sample-ladden deconstruction of techno that occupies the space somewhere between Actress and The Field.
