Album Review

Alienslang – “Hazmat Cape” – [Ratskin Records]

surferrosa   2/26/2013   A Library, CD

Pixilated sounds and gurgling beats courtesy of local SF/Oakland artist Alienslang or Jsun McCarty.You can tell that this guy has a soft spot for both techno and noise. Sounds like the audio to a scuzzy dance party with mood lighting populated by outdated short circuiting cyborgs, coated in rust..losing limbs on the dance floor… Or maybe like playing an old school Atari videogame on LSD. Glitchy, blipped-out beats and programmed percussion patterns dipped in the honey of filth and alien sound. An orchestra of beeps bloops, processed organics, and belching electronics. Sort of sparse and industrial in its own way….music made by possessed, junkjard machines who just wanna dance. This is the kind of nightclub I wouldn’t mind stepping into.. which is saying something. -Surfer Rosa
