RIYL: Gas, William Basinski

Label: Magical Garage Taste

Bounty Research is distorted – from the cover to the contents within. The cover seems like you’re looking at a portion of Starry Night through some turbulent water whilst drunk… or you could be looking at the lights shining on a nuclear reactor submerged in a pool. Let’s hope it’s not the latter. As “Weed Jag” turns on, it sounds as if Wolfgang Voigt dropped a track to his iconic Pop album on his way to record it and tumbled down in to the dankest of swamps. About halfway through, it dabbles in beat music (think Botany) but then makes a return to the static-filled and borderline-loop music that ignited Bounty Research. The second track, “Highland Sharks,” adheres to a stricter regimen than “Weed Jag” but about halfway through, once again, we get a change of mood. Except with “Highland Sharks,” the change of pace goes deeper down the rabbit hole of the unknown instead of taking a peak out of the swamp to look at the sun that struggles to break through the cotton-like fog that permeates your surroundings and every orifice. Listen to Bounty Research below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
