"Two lengthy excursions of intense minimalism (drones, loops,
echo, fold-back) meeting industrial nightmare tonalities. For fans of
Kluster/Cluster, the abstract Throbbing Gristle, Alto Stratus, Laughing
Hands, Asmus Tietchens, Zoviet France, et al."
Clothearz - STIG (Poultry Productions PP5) MC
Yet more music from the land of the festering ducks...
Clothearz present us with two lengthy soundscapes for synth, violin,
voices, saucepan lid and cupboard door on Stig Part One; and voices, water,
teacup, lamp shade, kettle, chair and sampled strings on Eno Trap Gits. Odd
instrumentation indeed, but the most important instrument they omit from
mentioning: namely a tape delay system that causes all the sounds to swirl
and glide around in dramatic rhythmic forays. With the exception of some
troublesome crackle in the mix, this is an exceptionally inventive diversion
from Frippertronics, that with the Mellotron-like sections on Eno Trap Gits
gets to great emotional and fascinatingly dynamic heights.
