traven. – ‘ЯTLLCTЯNCS’ CDr £4
TRAVEN’s sound would easily accompany a Nigel Kneale vision of the near future, which is appropriate since that’s clearly where he is from. The sound on this short strange album, recently released on the very discriminate Aetheric Records, is enthrallingly obscure, SLOW motion, slightly frightening. Yet ЯTLLCTЯNCS (ritual electronics) equally evokes an intimate expressionism – faded, water-warped loops and piano-haunted fragments are revealed amid the amp-blown claustrophobia and bad-dream-stuck-on-repeat ambience. The ensuing damp and dread sets the tone for a noir-filtered excursion into body horror, occult architecture and fragmented identity. Put on your mask please, and join the company. Comes with folded paper inlay and pin badge.
