Album Review

Timeghost – “Cellular” – [Load Records]

Louie Caliente   2/22/2016   12-inch, A Library


First full-length release from Adam Morosky of Providence RI, aka Timeghost.

The album blends the organic and algorithmic. Most songs have biological
themes, with lyrics about genetics, entropy, and fetal organ development.

The theme is expressed sonically: recordings of muscle spasms and squishy,
slurpy cut-up tape sounds mix with samples of cell-phone interference and
electrostatic buzzing, beeping, and bubbling. Pulsing rhythms appear, evolve,
and disappear. Textured samples flow and grind around each other.

“Dissection Theater” (A-3) has a taste of the familiar sludgy rock sound that
Load Records is known for. It could work on a metal show. “Delicate Resonances”
(A-4) and “Uber Orgone” (B-1) are more synthy and pretty than the rest of the

Almost all tracks except for “Intrusion” (B-2) have vocals, usually delivered
in a low, flat mumble. Lyrics are listed in the liner notes.
