Triple review on Vital Weekly!

I almost missed this, but apparently, more than a year ago, the almighty Vital Weekly web magazine reviewed in one shot all my tape releases of 2018 (A Deafening Silence, Base and Vespertine Works).

The reviews of the work are okay, as in the music didn’t blow their hats off, but they seemed to like it, although there is a repeating theme about it not being particularly “new”, which is fair enough, especially for a site that regularly reviews works of forward-thinking artists and bands that I worship, like Machinefabriek and others.

Of all three albums, the best words are for Base, getting some praise for its deliberated and strategic approach to noise:

Not your usual harsh noise walls, but a rather interesting free play of distorted sounds, guitars and electronics alike, with freeform percussion. […] This is quite removed from the other two releases, which seem more considerate and controlled, whereas this one is chaotic and wild. Here is some noise that is familiar and fine, with that rough edge we all love some much. It is not the work of madmen going wild and wilder, but something done with some care and consideration. That’s how we love them best.

Happy to have my music been considered by “the oldest source for music reviews”. Read the whole triple-review here, at the bottom of this issue: http://www.vitalweekly.net/1148.html
