DOWNLOAD: Asian Women on the Telephone - ICanT
Asian Women on the Telephone
Russian Dadaist industrial drone rock outfit Asian Women on the Telephone have released a new full length that utterly surpasses their previous work and many other records released this year. Similar street level clang and clatter to the likes of Religious Knives, Skull Defects, Mi Ami, Black Dice and original non-conformist dissenting confrontationalists like Einstürzende Neubauten, Faust, Throbbing Gristle and Suicide, ICanT has reconceived and energised their vision into producing the band’s most idiosyncratic and physically exciteable album to date.
As those preceeding references would suggest, theirs is a contorted melding of kraut, psych, industrial, and avant-garde elements all interlocked and playing off each other at any one time, certain aspects arcing out of each of the eight track with varying degrees of intensity. Highlights are inevitably the parts where propulsive beats comes to the fore and suck the rest of the noise along in its slipstream, the grandest most sweat-inducing wide-eyed piece of them all literally having their thrall to the hypnotic embedded in its title: Vip-Maria-Viva-Trance.
The physical release is limited to 100 CD-Rs bound in hand-made silkscreen pentagon folders available through RAIG Records and Shiny Beast.
