Phog Masheen – “Survey of Brutality” – [Distorto Sound]

surferrosa   8/20/2012   A Library, CD

The electro-acoustic, uber-distroto musings of noise chemist Phog Masheen. This is a sorta glitchy, demented, industrial daydream. The beat is bent and deformed by the fuzz, but it shines through the grit, giving you the compulsion to wiggle out an involuntary jig. The trumpet howls through some of these tracks, heavily processed and thoroughly filthied. Here is a towering mass of noise and rhythm, escalating and searing through a psychoactive sound parade. Listen to the voices..and take your meds!! -Surfer Rosa
