Helm – Olympic Mess


[ PAN, 2015 ]

Luke Younger, formerly of the noise/drone unit Birds of Delay keeps making hallucinatory, distorted psychedelic electronics under the guise Helm. His relationship with PAN label is healthy and fruity, but last year’s Olympic Mess might be the Mount Olympus indeed. On the newest LP, Younger mixes deep, pulsing synthscapes with metallic, rusted textures and occasional assaults of massive, bass-heavy noise. Mostly, though, it stays strangely liquid and fluid, as if alive with some unknown life force, escaping human understanding. Olympic Mess is an ever-evolving mass of pure sound, kept within a lo-fi fish tank. Highly recommended!
