Album Review

Teen Anal Terrorist – “Warm Blatz For Teenage Runaways” – [Savage Quality Recordings]

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

Fully undanceable industrial beats, glitch and filth. All construction sites, office buildings and hospitals may have joined forces to birth this record. This is a warped, heavily manipulated, asymmetrical mind fuck. Scraping, buzzing, gurgling and chocking on its own blood. Hats off to whoever did the production here. Sampleage is out of control…backwards loops, ladies whispering, phones ringing, distant conversations fading in and out of audibility…crackles and bumps and broken, lopsided beats. Life support beeps and dings. Ominous hums. Wet, bubbling noises and familiar sounds made foreign. These sounds are stacked on top of each other to create pieces with just the right amount of cohesion, teetering between total sanity and absolute nonsense.. the music of attention deficit disorder, appropriate for today’s modern dysfunctions. Discogs tells me there are eight tracks here… some segue, some don’t.. you can sort of tell from looking at the grooves or listening for the changes, but not as a rule…so be mindful. This LP is layered with dirt, grime and shimmery craftsmanship. Appallingly good.-Surfer Rosa
