Album Review

Imbogodom – “Metallic Year, The” – [Thrill Jockey Records]

surferrosa   1/18/2012   12-inch, A Library

A dreadful duo from the UK and New Zealand, Imbogodom create a tense ominous landscape for your sonic pleasaure. An amalgamation of both acoustic and electronic drones. Gurgling, bubbling tones sink your soul into a dank, dark, underwater heaven. The stunning moan of bowed strings and the musings of a haunted piano leave a tense, bittersweet taste on the tip of your tongue. Clicks and scrapes of a guitar, warped sounds of tape manipulation and the occasional human hum or guttural groan build an immense wall of beautifully demented bliss. Ease yourself into the pleasant oscillation of electronic tones, ringing and swelling, fooling you into a thorny state of comfort. -Surfer Rosa
