Drose – Boy Man MachinePosted: July 29, 2016 | |
[ Orange Milk Records, 2016 ]
Black fumes exploded in my face when I launched this album on an Orange Milk Bandcamp page. Among the colorful, glitchy psych output of this label Boy Man Machine, an album by the Columbus, OH based Drose (led by Dustin Rose) stood out like an enormous, rusted anomaly. Channeling the tortured chords of early Swans, sinister electronics of Throbbing Gristle and the legacy of sludge and doom metal Boy Man Machine is a sparse, unsettling soundscape of dark, underlit industrial buildings and rusted machinery. A blackened look at modern technology usually offered by the Orange Milk Industries. Recommended!
