Transhumans, The – “Sink” – [Love Earth Music]

incognito   1/18/2013   A Library, CD

Noise/experimental/ambient release from The Transhumans on Love Earth Music. This 2011 release from the Ventura, CA group is something I might cautiously label as “user friendly” noise, although I’m not recommending playing it for your grandma. They never get into the overly harsh, aggressive or morbid; live and electronic drums, drones, signal noise and effects are used to create more of a science lab feel than a psych ward. Although the first track is perhaps as close to what you would expect out of a noise composition – heavy and at times overloaded, the sound moves closer toward the ambient side as the album progresses, almost delving into jazz at a few points. Overall, an excellent release worthy of the phrase “White Noise from Black Mountain.”
