Pykrete – “Liber Novus” – [FrequeNC]

Experimental electronic douple LP from Chuck Johnson, AKA Pykrete. 3 sides are studio recordings, and one track recorded live at the Totally Intense Fractal Mindgaze Hut in Oakland in 2008. Sides A and B are noisy and discorant: sounds of low screeched tones, like picks dragged across distorted bass strings, digital bleeps and bloops, low frequency, gurgling drone. Of the noise tracks, I particularly enjoyed the spacy and hollow sounding “Lux Narada.” Side C begins to cross over into techno, while still staying planted firmly in noise – sounds a bit like some Blackest Ever Black releases. Side D is two techno tracks – fairly conventional 4/4, dark and minimal techno. Solid album.
