Throbbing Gristle – “Third Mind Movements, The” – [Industrial Records]

lombard   12/15/2009   A Library, CD

Around since the 1970s, long-time industrial band Throbbing Gristle brings us “The Third Mind Movements,” a CD release that was crafted in 2009 to coincide with their U.S. tour.

It begins with a twinkly piece with sort of a soundtrack feeling to it. It has a bright start, leading into some haunted processed voice. Throughout the release we hear repetitive electronics, with a tribal and mystical bent to them. Sometimes there are creepy voices or footsteps or repetitive claps. You might hear bells, buzz, stomp, clomping feet through a darkened muddy forest, or a messed up bit from a retro jazz record processed through a tin-can telephone (or was that a dying police siren?).

It all makes for an intriguing listen.
