Mold Omen – ‘Sanbenito’ CS $5
Mold OmenComing to you all the way from Baltimore, Mold Omen and their album Sanbenito. A “sanbenito” is a penitential garment worn by heretics, especially during the Spanish Inquisition. This heavy, loaded word translates into some fine improv/noise music by MO. The album isn’t aggressively dissonant, over the top, or bleak, but instead plays with gaps and silences in between plucked tones. Evocative is a word we like use to describe their sound tapestry. It is a challenging listen to be sure, but one that fans of the group will enjoy.
