CHURCH OF GRAVITRON: 19+Sterile: CD

Jul 06, 2010

Static- and feedback-laden soundscapes, four tracks in total, are the rule of thumb here. While many others treading similar ground too often merely grab the nearest radio, tune it off-station, and record the results as some sort of quasi-artistic statement, it’s clear here that much more thought was given to what was being done. This makes all the difference and the result, while still nowhere near the traditional verse-chorus-verse definition of “music,” is abundant in moody, screechy, cohesive charm. It’s definitely an acquired taste, but those with the palate will find much to savor.
