Live At Club ℭilencio
New album and the last release from a productive year from Yorba Zergot, aka ʄ≜uxmuℭica who I turned a whole week of blog over to a little while ago. The nine-track album is split into two halves, the first five tracks concering an elemental spirit each - yes, there's a obviously occuring fifth in Yorba's world - Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Aether (Luminous) and they contain some of his strongest tracks so far and as a whole it is one of his most coherent works, sounding like a Fritz Lang / Russ Meyer / David Lynch pile up; film noir grinding into brown acid dark psychedelia with hints of sexualisation. It's got one of the most uplifting straight out 4/4 moments of impassioned clubiness in Fire (Hades) set amongst a host of screaming pitch-shifted demons harrying the tone-bent synths that are Zergot's signature. Like previous releases this is not for the faint hearted and rewards repeated listens with a slow release of it's charms - a certain amount of acclimatisation is required before you can fully appreciate what you are hearing and that is an incredibly rare, if not previously extinct, quality in music.
The four tracks that follow the elemental suite are older tracks that have been collated at the end for good measure - bonuses if you will; as if you'd need further enticement.
Stalk the cat on Soundcloud, Twitter, stream the full album and slide the man a few clams over on Bandcamp:
