Album Review

Smith, Chris – “Bad Orchestra” – [Hermit Hut]

humana   11/8/2014   12-inch, A Library


The guitar music on this LP originally from 2007 has been described as dark ambience, but to me it’s simply intense, with little palate cleaners and fascinating field sounds and samples in places, and the music sounds like the train pictured on the album cover in “Your Tunnel.” There are occasional vocals that are not the clearest. I wouldn’t call it a bad orchestra, but I would say the Australian musician has crafted the music to attempt badness, which is a good thing.
