Blank Dolmen – “Wuzzermatic” – [Atro.Fact]

Lost tapes of Raffaele Cerroni recovered in 1999 by Italian independent label Atro.Fact. All the recordings were done 1983-1994 by Cerroni’s project Mushroom’s Patience and contain a mix of synth drones, found sounds, acoustic experimentation, broken drum machine rhythms and tape manipulations; also some muddled vocals on 5, 13. Sounds of synthetic, sepia-like soundscapes saturated with corroded plastic. 2-4 have an especially Lynch-esque feel to them with a paranoid serenity that is deceiving. 7 gets astroweird and then we jump into a spaghetti-western jazz lounge on 8. 10 gives us a suspenseful arcade adventure and we got some underwater lounge grooves on 12. The album feels like buried treasure from the 80s, we’re lucky to have it.
