Baalte - Auto
I received this submission in the mail all the way from Madrid last week. It was an overwhelming listen the first time through, but with a little patience and an attentive ear you'll find some pretty infectious moments on this record. A good majority of the samples used are aurally illegible, the SNES-inspired synths are deeply buried beneath the somewhat afrobeat basslines, and all the other various noises are so heavily layered that much of this album comes across as pure noise. In other words, this is highly entertaining release for those who enjoy a challenging listen. For fans of Black Dice, Wolf Eyes, and all the other noisies out there.
