Album Review

Naucke, Brett – “Visitor, The” – [Nihilist Records]

cinder   5/1/2013   12-inch, A Library

Debut vinyl release from the guy who runs the Catholic Tapes label. An “electronic bog filled with subtle seductive melodies and eerie organic abstractions.” Rhythms of dense, murky electronics intertwine like fireflies doing their mating dance. The later half of side A intrigued me the most, with it’s intense digital water droplets. Starting as a soft drizzle, it soon soaks you in a drowning downpour. Subtle drifting drones shift in and out, giving it the extra spooky mind-space. Lighter, twinkling tones start off side B, which then leads into a damp, moist cave filled with scampering insects. Dark, spooky, and imaginative.
