Yermo – “Yermo ” – [Last Visible Dog Records]

Who are Yermo? Well, Chris Moon is rumored to be the head of Last Visible Dog. Dean Thompson may or may not be the subject of the MCMS track “Dean Thompson, Killer of the Living?. Both were probably actually part of MCMS. So who are they? I have no freakin’ idea.

What do they do, then? Well, that I may be able to help with. On this disc they serve up a tasty double-splortch of loopy, driving, grinding, elusive, persistent, symphonic, melodic noisecore that will leave you alternately ripping off the headphones and drooling for more – sometimes mere seconds apart. The title track is by far more notable, grinding its way into your skull, then unexpectedly flitting about before grinding some more. It moves in multiple scales, and rewards repeated listens, but the 50 minute length may be offputting. The second track just feels less substantial next to the sonic colossus that is yermo, but it has merit, too.

Suggestion: scan a random time into track 1, pot up, then pot down when you think they’ve had enough.
