Night Control – “Death Control” – [kill shaman]

Something about this CD of home recordings by Christopher Curtis Smith is familiar and nostalgic, perhaps hearkening back to great moments in 1990s pop; yet at the same time it’s been turned on its head. Night Control‘s CD “Death Control” also has noisy moments, feedback (“Star 131″), whirring sounds like a piece of vinyl played at the wrong speed (“No Making”), and beautiful post-rock lusciousness (“Enunciated”). This combination of synth, piano, found sounds, guitar, bass, drum, effects, and vocals just works. Apparently this is a collection of material from earlier CD-R releases that he put out under the name Crystal Shards.
