RIYL: KILN, Lymbyc Systym
Label: Always Human Tapes
Grimoire-esque’s¬†Etcetera EP is hard to pin down – I guess it has a fitting name, what-with et cetera being able to entail a variety of items. The closest comparison I can think of is to KILN, and to a certain extent Lymbyc Systym. Etcetera¬†isn’t a silky smooth listen, as the cover would also suggest.¬†¬†Etcetera¬†is quite disjointed in its production, but it isn’t disjointed to the point of being offensive to your sensibilities. This EP feels like a bumpy ride through the past with its arsenal of samples and synthetic stabs.¬†Always Human Tapes suggests to close your eyes while listening to this “braindance.”¬†Etcetera, during its all too-short and erratic stay, is able to take you to the middle of the night with a clear sky to gaze at.¬†This is something to have at the ready and something I feel is better enjoyed during the night. Listen to the¬†Etcetera EP¬†below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
With Grimoire-esque, it feels great to be grabbed by the throat. The Etcetera EP is full of apparitions and undersea tastes, moldy crunch grooves and under-the-skin bubble dream horror. Have a listen with closed eyes as producer Fletcher Aleckson sculpts an interesting breed of braindance.
Imagine the line of dirt left after using a dustpan, the comforting hum of background laundry, rotten grapes, forks on china, ticking fluorescents, orange VHS tapes, metallic light switch cover plates, and prolonged milk-immersion prune fingers.
Beachcombing is only available when the full EP is purchased.
