OIL WAVE SURFERS: Oil Wave Surfers II: CS

Originally recorded in 2006, this is an instrumental collage of sounds that range from industrial feedback to jazzy—at times grating and at times groovy—and consistently driven by sludgy, eerie riffs that make me think of nominally malevolent nightbreeds prowling the gutter. I don’t listen to a lot of stuff like this, so it’s difficult for me to come up with an adequate description or even an appropriate comparison. I guess the closest I can get is that it’s like a more experimental version of the Tunnel Of Love, sans lyrics. –The Lord Kveldulfr (C/Site Recordings)
