RIYL: Fuck Buttons, The Haxan Cloak, Aphex Twin
Label: Sacred Bones Records
Benjamin John Power’s advanced electronic project Blanck Mass is back with a fourth full-length titled Animated Violence Mild, his third album with Sacred Bones Records.¬† According to the label, the 8 track record is “the diary of a year of work steeped in honing craft, self-discovery, and grief.” His grief is both personal and empathetic, a lament for his own losses and our universal decay, physically and spiritually.¬† Heavy stuff, but a topic that Power can easily address with the trademark crushing sounds he developed with Fuck Buttons.¬† Combining industrial electronic, sampling and noise, expect this Blanck Mass album to hit you straight in the gut in the best way.¬† Every new album shows growth in his style, inventiveness and willingness to explore off the beaten path.
Sacred Bones has a limited green vinyl version limited to 300 as well as a rarer subscription variant limited to a mere 150 copies.¬† Find out about the club version HERE.¬† For the UK listeners, there is a ‘dinked version’ on red wax you can find through various online distros like THIS.
