Machweo – No Way Out EPPosted: May 5, 2013
Indian Gold Records starts to become one of my favorite netlabels, not only because of the quality of music they offer (first SLZR, then Rancho Shampoo), but also because of how open they are to the music from outisde the designated “psychedelic” comfort zone. “No Way Out” EP from the Italian electronic youngster Machweo is not psych rock, but might be just as trippy. It treads the ground somewhere between slowed down, deconstructed hip-hop filled with dark undertones and field recordings to the cavernous, star-gazing minimal techno in the vein of Pantha du Prince. Plus lots of scary, super-echoing vocal samples, Holy Other style. The two remixes are ace too. Recommended!
