Kelvox 1 – “Grazed Red” – [Aagoo]

Here’s a UK trio (synths/sampler,bass,and guitar/vox) spinning out two long mesmerizing tracks. The starting point seems to be a yearning kind of 80′s-style pop, but it’s slowed down and floating in a sea of extreme reverb. Sort of like Human League on quaaludes. The vocals, somewhat down in the mix, seem tuneful but they aren’t really–they’re just kind of there every once in a while during the side-long tracks; meanwhile all kinds of other stuff is happening: snakey guitar lines, deep bass tones, minimal but insistent programmed percussion, dub effects coming and going, subtly layered synths, and many sounds of indeterminate origin. Side B is the noisier of the two; more industrial sounding I guess. Both sides are well worth experiencing.
