Product Description

Jaws is a reality based sound and performance project by Robert Girardin. Influenced by the everyday rhythmic impressions of sight and movement, it uses electronics and voice to put forth a dense and slithering sound with lyrics reflecting the labrythine confines and possibilities of life. In late 2011 Jaws released its first album, the crash-informed Stress Test on Hundebiss Records. This was followed by a collaboration with Milan's Dracula Lewis as the Sex Boyz, a post-analogue reimagining of two sneering Germs songs, released on Ultra Eczema. In 2012 Jaws was the inaugural act for Ashland Mine's highly-praised Blasting Voice performance series, staged at the Suzanne Geiss gallery in downtown Manhattan. The creator behind Jaws has for years worked with New York's Excepter, touring Europe and recording three albums. He is a current member of Hippos In Tanks act White Car. Jaws' next release is the Keys To The Universe , an exuberant, crushing visualization of life from the top of the heap.

It’s been three years since JAWS, a.k.a. Robert Girardin debut released on Italian label Hundebiss. ‘Keys to the Universe’ is the second release by JAWS and continues the nightmare (ish) vision of rhythmic sounds. Stress Test’s concept was one piece of music over two sides whereas ‘Keys to the Universe’ sees separate tracks. With both releases bass drum still thumps over much of the electronics and samples. Polisher starts like some cheap computer game but soon ends up in an orgy of rhythm, sound and Girardin’s echo filled vocals. You never know what you are getting with JAWS ‘Infinity Blaze’ starts out like some cheap B movie soundtrack which is interrupted by someone’s strange dream. If there ever could be a spaced out track then think ‘In Line’ although the music continually evolves. This is also the track where Girardin’s vocals are at the forefront for the first half. The last track is 15mins of JAWS at its best and perhaps the most emotional.

So what’s happened in the three years? Well, Girardin seems to have refined the writing process and ironed out some of the rough edges. Some may miss the harder industrial sounds of Stress Test as ‘Keys to the Universe’ is slightly more melodic atmospheric and overall sounds less cluttered. However, the rhythmic patterns, the ever swirling sounds make this album sound out from other experimental electronic albums. It’s also good to see Girardin kept his vocals at the centre of the JAWS sound. If you enjoy music electronic that's experimental and not the norm then it is certainly worth checking this out.
