John Lake – Strange GodsPosted: January 18, 2016
[ Mik.Musik.!., 2015]
Super-strange rough zones from Poland’s Łukasz Dziedzic creating paranoid, noisy beat-electronix under the moniker John Lake. Strange Gods is a take on paganism and animism seen through the lens of corroded mutant techno, a story of all the different gods and deities that happened in all possible forms over the course of human history who suddenly decided to have a dance-off on a dancefloor somewhere deep down in a concrete fallout shelter. The album is highly distorted and if often blurs between the line between paranoid ambient and techno music without any hint of a melody. It’s difficult, it’s annoying, it’s great. Recommended, but in a confused, tortured way.
