Liles, Andrew – “Ninki Nanka, Yumboes & Monsters” – [Dirter Promotions]
Nurse with Wound, Current 93 character Andrew Liles brings us another in his “Monster” series, this one being partially inspired by a Lee “Scratch” Perry album being produced by a friend. So a few years later Liles decided to make his own dub album with voices from Maude Swift and Steve Pittis.
I’d call it minimal dub noise, Hawkeye called it drugs & bass. Definitely on the dub side, while still being a little dynamic. Lots of moaning and growling, buzzes, squelches and squaks. Four tracks on this guy, the first one is a 14-minute long space trip, very minimal, silent at points even. Let’s you slip into the mood.
Second track only 5 minutes, but scarier, more brooding, with tribal drumming. Track 3 is my favorite for bringing in the funky bassline for a good 9-10 minutes, then there’s breaking glass and liquid sounds with a cool spoken word piece. Last track is an eleven minute, slower, spacier dub track with deep dark horns with some nice screaming in the middle.
Fun noize dubz..
