IIOII – 5 5

The Chilean duo IIOII (previously featured on Weed Temple as TVNOISE) appear to have progressed from their chilled, motorik krautrock sound of their previous releases into something more mysterious, cosmic, and most importantly, almost purely electronic (save for some stellar guitar ambience a’la Windy & Carl on the second track). Shimmering drones and profound synthesizer pulsations ignite a sense of mystery, like a monster lurking under the sea (by the way, the discography of IIOII / TVNOISE is worth checking out for their great album artworks alone, always reducing natural landscapes to an absolute minimum). Here the sounds are also reduced to almost minimum, but they’re not cold or inhuman – it’s ambience, filled with sublety and occasional lack of tune. Where will the travel take us? Recommended!
