First off, let’s just acknowledge that this limited edition package comes with a human tooth. Â April Fools? Â Nope…Sacred Bones.
Benjamin John Power, co-mastermind behind the orgasmicly heavy electronic noise duoÂ Fuck Buttons, ventured out into solo territory in 2010 as Blanck Mass. Â His 2011 self-titled full-lengthÂ was a gorgeous sprawling epic, immersed in layer upon layer of electronic fuzz. Â Imagine being slowly eaten alive by a rainbow. Â Yeah, it’s that intense.
Power’s new record Dumb Flesh is a reflection on the flaws of the human body. Â As Norm MacDonald once said, the odds of you being killed by a terrorist are pretty slim, but the odds of you being attacked by your own heart?…100 per f-ing cent. Â His latest track Dead Format is a much more aggressive adrenaline rush, but expect more of his lush ambient soundscapes as well. Â This one’s a no-brainer for me, and I’m already figuring out how to make a tooth necklace.
P.S. That f-ing album cover, man. Â Is that NSFW? Â Is it just a bunch of flesh? Â Sweet Moses,Â what is happening there?
