CIRCUIT DES YEUX: CDY3: 10”

Sep 19, 2013

The first track basically sounds like it could be pulled off of a Nico album, both vocally and in its approach to ambient sound. The second continues with the spaciness, but throws in some sludgy guitar for some reason. The vocals are so overbearing, however, that it somehow still feels like you’re hearing the same song. The A side is rounded out by some distorted dirge, which is only cool if Sonic Youth is playing it. The B side is a continuation of this obnoxious noise which builds into a song not worth all the static you just had to hear. Maybe this is the kind of music you call experimental, but it’s not really an experiment. This sounds like “experimental” music in the way that “progressive rock” sounds progressive without ever progressing.
