"BANG! BROS. is New England's premier drum-machine-prodding free-IDM super duo. On these BRAND new recordings we are treated to more than just the usual whirring/blurring of Ed Roland + Thom Simon's factory-reset drum samples. Joining the boys with shiny sax on the beach, we have Andy Allen (formerly of Guerilla Toss), leaping from the surface of these live recordings with princess' castles full of sad blue blues, and hard harsh truths. Switching lanes you're stuck in the sun pass, there's no pulling over till the tape stops.
Hard on the heels of that incredible Prurient side, Blackest Ever Black introduce Alexander Lewis to the fold with this maiden LP of bitter industrial electronics and "S-M Techno". Recorded in one take with minimal computer processing or post-production, its blinkerdly linear construction, billowing feedback clouds and glazed stare instantly and strongly reminds of Hospital Productions' criminally underrated Kris Lapke aka Alberich, which is high praise indeed.
