Post-Materialists – “Love” – [Eggy]

For me it all started by hunting for Russian
masters of experimental sounds and came across the
Post-Materialists’ inverted Velvet Underground cover
post-mat.bandcamp.com/track/venus-in-furs-long-yellow
a few more clicks brought me back to good ol’ Eggy??
cassettes. This release moves to the beat of a
laughing clock, time is slippery and the vocals
even slipperier. Backwards guitar (#2,#6) waltzes
into frame, percussion feels hand-made and hand-dropped
at times. Check out “Think” with its empty tank
clank and gibberish falsetto, before more howling
vocals come in. I probably shouldn’t think of
Asian Women on the Telephone, but I probably am.
There’s a kind of No-Wave confluence of edgy rock
and squeaky sax like on the stop and start of “The
Wheel” but plenty of WTF-ery on tracks like “I Love
You.” Sergey Efremov are definitely folks to keep our
ears and fish-eyes on!
