Album Review

Stranger, The – “Watching Dead Empires In Decay” – [Modern Love]

abacus   11/19/2014   A Library, CD


omnificent, omnipotent, ominous: this project of Leyland Kirby carries the dark musique-concrete tradition of his other projects with a more techno-dystopic theme; reflections on the monolithic beauty inherent in the decay and destruction of modern civilization. post-industrial ritualism stripped down and stretched out, machine-line dub rhythms and broken disjointed trip-hop vibrations chattering. the instrumentation is vague and ambiguous, circuit switched electronics, lingering field recordings, glitched drum machines. stark, haunted by the ghosts of our psyche dead behind our eyes. dizzy, dazed by the sheer force of delusion. devolved, incapacitated by our own progression.
