Album Review

Anworth Kirk – “Shacklecross” – [Pre-Cert Home Entertainment]

surferrosa   9/11/2012   12-inch, A Library

Fingers running along the rims of watered wine glasses. Strings breaking. A faucet is dripping. Somebody is moaning in the next room. The drum line is doing drills outside. The forest is burning. oh.. the forest..Almost like surfing on the radio dial. Fleeting thoughts of precussion and melody are droned out by a haunting. Cerebral. Otherworldly. It loops, chirps and glitches. Pulls an electro-acoustic string through your fried brain. You can hear the tracks change if you are keeping an ear out, but the tracks flow as seamlessly as side longs. The sounds here are incapacitating. Tones for every inch of your body. This record is dank like a dungeon. -Surfer Rosa

the radio as a forest being gently played with, love it. fleeting thoughts and of melody and what is it really, a haunting, love it. tracks which track but can be picked out but too incapacitating is the music to change it, love it. an audio environment as vivid as a dungeon, love it.
