I love Chad, love Black Mold, love Dog Day so this collabo seemed like a dream come true. And it is, but it wasn't at first.
Upon first listen, there were some standout moments but it mostly just sounded like a couple of guys messing around with synths and samplers. Which is essentially what it is, but it requires more listening to really get at the heart of what this thing is. After the second consecutive play, it clicked. Now, I've been listening to it on repeat for most of the day. It's hypnotic, abrasive but not too abrasive, atmospheric, droney but also propulsive and catchy all at once. It's a remarkable and extremely listenable exploration of both organic and synthesized sound. It's great. nscriv
