Album Review

Post-Alarmist Dracula Safari [coll] – [Oms-B Records]

abacus   11/29/2011   12-inch, A Library

Collection of solo projects from former members of spastic jazz-punk Portland band Alarmist. Tracks are a little less chaotic than the band’s previous efforts, engaging in a much darker, more contemplative climate of haunting, unhinged, sometimes industrial sounding projects. Inca Ore is Eva Saelens: ethereal wind-chime drones cradling ghostly whispered vocals set over a sound collage of clips from old Alarmist shows. Argumentix is James Squeaky: post-apocalyptic anthems rapped over rumbling gothic/industrial beats with mic rustlings and tenor sax musings. Ghost to Falco is Eric Crespo: tormented western folk-dirge with slowcore build. Tunnels is Nick Bindeman: caustic, piercing psych-pop with gloomy synth and moaning vocals. Limited to 300 copies.
