OFF-THE-RADAR ALBUM RECOMMENDATION

PUNISH, HONEY | VESSEL | TRI ANGLE RECORDS

The newest release from London/New York based record label, Tri Angle Records, is in typical Tri Angle style, encompassing all things nocturnal. My number one source for witch house, grime, drone, noise, their release of Vessel’s 2014 release, Punish, Honey, jumps to the top of my list for albums worth giving a shit about. Punish, Honey is a completely different beast than his last 2012 release, Order Of Noise; it’s got grit. It’s dark and ominous and beautifully melodic at times - the third track on the record, Drowned In Water & Light, is cloaked in soundscape-esque synths but then transforms into a sluggish yet beautifully melodic take on grime and drone, sometimes reminiscent of Tri Angle artist, Forest Swords - dragging along, Vessel drags you down with him. It’s moving in the same way that it’s absolutely soul sucking. 

The single, Red Sex, is a standout on the album for it’s otherworldly progressions and manipulation of sounds. It’s industrial percussion yet primitive rhythms are deceiving because Red Sex will take you somewhere you would never expect to end up.

Long live Δ

I realize I haven’t posted on here in awhile, things have been hectic for me lately with my band releasing a 7 inch and planning a mini southern Ontario tour and also for some reason I haven’t been all that motivated to listen to music, which is terrible.

In any case I’m back now, was thinkin of starting a little RSM classics review series, essentially I have a list of my favourite albums of all time and I would review them individually instead of trying to stay up to date on new releases (which I’ll still try to touch on).

Good to be back!

This is so terrible but like, I discovered Soulseek the other night and like, I’m someone who actively purchases new music because you know, support the artist, but guh. So. Much. Music.

This album is quickly becoming a 2014 favorite for me.
