alienslang – “Hall of Tongues” – [Placenta Recordings]
Pre-apocalyptic paranoid delusions of dystopic demise from Oakland’s Jsun McCarty (Nerfbau, Styrofoam Sanchez). Not the noise one might expect, but still plenty of cybernetic sensory overload amidst the meticulously constructed beat skeletons creeping along. Crunchy, crumbling bass and invasive robotic bleeps compete within the sparse industrial rhythms of this two-dimensional lazer rave party. Snarling schizophrenic free-association reflections on vigilance and freedom, media saturation, religious ambiguity and insidious trends of international totalitarianism guide us through this hypnagogic navigation of our political atmosphere. More aesthetically structured than the Ratskin release and project currently known as dilatedears. Later tracks instrumental, FCC 6.
