1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Dec 2013
Format: Audio CD
Not to be confused with maverick author Charles Bukowski's collection of
short stories (although perhaps sharing a tentative anarchic kinship) this
'Tales Of Ordinary Madness' is a sonic work by Berlin-based duo Ingo Gansera
and Marco Freivogel, producers well-versed in the art of electronic dance.

They make a pleasingly dark sound. This is the kind of brooding techno born
to be heard in sweltering subterranean caverns wherein creatures of the night
can lose themselves in reckless rhythmic abandon and the sins of the flesh.

There are nine tracks in the collection. The formula, although relatively
unchallenging to the human ear (monolithic bone-rattling beats; grinding
industrial landscapes shot through on occasion with quasi-melodic synth
decorations to lighten the load) is nonetheless well-structured and with
sufficient variation in mood and dynamic flow to keep our attention engaged.

I found myself particularly drawn to 'Electric Glare' which clatters along
nicely and gives us a good sense of what it might be like to be a cog revolving
at the heart of some infernal machine and 'Verlooka' which takes an almost
jolly trance-like fragment and augments it with all manner of deliciously
squeezy and squelchy synth embellishments, a tad redolent of early System 7.
Final track 'Look At The Harlequins' nightmare-in-a-fairground gyrations
left me wanting more and with my paws clenched and heart beating faster.

All-in-all a very pleasant glimpse into the abyss. Play it loud.
