It’s been a while since I’ve heard an album that absolutely boils with so many conflicting emotions. From first impressions though, absolutely everything on Caprice Enchanté sounds angry.
USA Nails – Life Cinema
On Life Cinema, USA Nails continue to hack, carve and flesh out this ghastly totem of their acerbic and unique sound.
Remote Viewing – Blood Loss
Remote Viewing’s sound is not a million miles away from the racket Palehorse created – there’s less low-end, as two guitars exist instead of the dual-bass attack.
THANK – Sexghost Hellscape
This is a Hieronymus Bosch painting in musical form that’s started to melt into a sickening puddle of smoldering wax, wires and decay. Subjecting yourself for more than 20 minutes of this will send you fucking insane. Boiling, bubbling, mutated flesh, that’s where we’re coming from. I feel sick.
UpCDownC – I, Awake
Split into 6 parts, I, Awake, the new album from instrumental-post-whatever-noise dirtbags UpCDownC, is essentially not being able to sleep at night; it’s sticking your feet out the end of the bed and wondering if a clawed hand is about to grab hold. Sweet dreams.
Blacklisters – Adult
The bile that races through the veins of Leeds’ Blacklisters is flecked with hundreds and thousands made out of spite and toxic laughter. Their concept of anything vaguely normal is an utterly redundant feeling – sounding like they’ve set fire to their instruments before they’ve started playing them..
Isolation Tank – S/T EP
London beat-combo Isolation Tank are no stranger to Keep It Fast, having reviewed their split EP with fellow crackpots, Art Of Burning Water back in November last year. They haven’t mellowed at all – far from it. Their new self-titled EP is an ugly, acidic affair that is ready to corrode and chew away with it’s bludgeoning and indignant power.
