Biography

What is a good way to start? Let’s start by getting naked.

There’s no more time to wait. It’s time for the weight. An arpeggio starts. Bass thunder rolls in from the sea, across beaches and over cliff tops, it ripples across fields and through the suburbs. As city streets narrow and scrape the sky, the noise is intensified into a beam. The modified Roland SH101 – ... Read more in Amazon's Factory Floor Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Falling forwards 30 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
'Fall Back', a single released in January this year, is the highlight of the eponymous debut album by London trio Factory Floor. It uses the unique vocals/guitar-synthesisers-drumkit instrumentation of the group at its most democratic and effective and is peppered throughout with a delightful array of weird and wonderful sounds. Somehow the song manages to be so ascetic and yet so wild: it is a great success, whether intended for the dance floor or for focussed listening.

The first Factory Floor LP has been dogged by extreme anticipation in the four year period following their 'Lying'/'A Wooden Box' EP: as a result, the majority of critic and fan reviews have approached the new material in a retrospective manner. The sound elements of their initial style included monochrome synth ostinati, pin-precision drumkit patterns and delectable swathes of guitar or crash cymbal noise. The vocals, deadpan and frequently indistinct, had a certain nave poetry with rhyming couplets and simplified cadences.

With the new album comes a greatly increased colour palette, especially in the percussive domain: now there is a range of electronic drum sounds including 808 samples, synthetic bongos and something sounding like metallic tins. These join the newfound variety of synth loops. 'How You Say' is based on bursts of stuttering static, on top of which Nik Colk Void produces brief build-ups of manipulated voice. 'Here Again', the most satisfying new track on the album, combines layers of syncopated raw electronic tones with washes of Ibiza-esque vocal phrases. In a general sense, however, the main change in the Factory Floor aesthetic is from dark industrial techno to something existing in the limbo space between various electronic dance styles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fearsome unrelenting post-techno music 25 Sep 2013
By Colin Mccartney TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This LP has received some tentative/lukewarm reviews in some quarters. Perhaps that's not surprising as it's not a particularly easy listen and not something you can just stick on in the background. Yuppies expecting some sort of tell-your-friends-about-Mercury-prize-nomination-type record are coming at this from completely the wrong angle. Nothing against yuppies but "Factory Floor" is something of a musicologist's record. Leave your pretensions at the door because this is the sort of music that needs a little figuring out: along the lines of - what on earth possessed somebody to make this; where the hell did it come from? The same sort of figuring out that I recall having to do on hearing post-Hannett New Order (the NO song "Hurt" in particular) or THE KEY OF DREAMS + SINGLES-era Section 25.

As a full album experience Factory Floor is quite a difficult proposition - it just doesn't let up. After all, what sort of mood does one have to be in to listen to this sort of music? It doesn't really seem to fit any particular mood other than one which says "let's play a good old racket". It is a dance record of sorts, but this has more in common with PIL and Cabaret Voltaire than it has with, say, Derrick May or Carl Craig. That's not to say it's retro, because it isn't. As I said in the review title I would call this post-techno - imagine Robert Hood's equally unrelenting Internal Empire played with real instruments and you're maybe about 3/4 of the way there. This is music to shake those (i.e. me) who have been listening to too much chill-wave out of their state of torpor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect... 28 Nov 2013
By BD
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Teetering on a precipice, pushing, forward. Almost climatic, never cheesy, constantly driving... and extremely danceable. Delicate and well designed delay and reverb ride the pulses over a distant colossal psychedelic spiral. Ominous voices, distorted guitar, echo echo echo. Live drums and drum machines vie for top billing, but the synth pulses and stabs lead the way. This is twenty first century Chris & Cosey. This is too much fun to miss out on. This is too much fun to miss out on. This is too much fun to miss out on... and what a live band too!! I’m in love : )

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the albums of the year 22 Sep 2013
By B Keeler VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Clearly this was always going to be a Marmite sound. It's not populist commercially-oriented guitar music nor is it club-leaning straightforward techno. It definitely settles into an analogue techno formula but with a stripped-back, rhythm driven ethos giving it some momentum throughout the album. In fact, it's one of the few techno-inspired albums I haven't got bored of about half-way through. The vocals are reminiscent of Liquid Liquid or something similar (though even more distant, and a more feminine tone), and they certainly fill the void in DFA that was missing when LCD Soundsystem wisely decided to finish things a few years ago. Great album, and as I said in the title of this review, one of the best this year - only bettered, in my opinion, by Boards of Canada, Quasimoto, My Bloody Valentine, Toro Y Moi and Darkstar. A decent British band that embrace electronic music inherently, and have been building to this point for years now - and it pays off!
