Format: Audio CD
SD Laika is American Peter Runge, who has recorded his debut ‘That’s Harakiri’ on Tri-Angle records. The palpable unease of SD Laika’s music starts unabashed with the opening ‘Peace’, a torn collection of fizzing and squeaking sounds against a heaving mass of synths. Its a caustic soundclash which introduces you to the discomforting, mutating sound of SD Laika.

SD Laika’s music has the knack of creating substance from formless mutations trying hard to remain alive. The music is saturated with layers and textures, its sheer density is loosened only by the energy created from a variety of melodies, rhythms and structures. ‘Great God Pan’ is a good example, which starts with scattered flatlining transmissions over a grimy synth but the rhythms soon deviate with more rampaging beats and percussion. Even the beats are irregular, its a track that sounds like it hasn’t been fully transmitted.

Runge’s sound is definitely of the moment, theres not much chance of anything lingering for very long. Its tricky to sustain this level of energy over a whole album, some tracks combust under this strain but Runge does a good job knowing when to stop. Other highlights include ‘Meshes’, catchy and subversive and difficult to avoid. There aren’t any tracks to rival ‘Tropic of Cancer’ on his ‘Unknown Vectors’ EP, a sophisticated horror show teetering on the edge of inaudibility and structure, where SD Laika’s skill harnesses sounds of agitated textures and brittle rhythms into a frightening stream of blinding light.

‘That’s Harakiri’ works because of its unpredictable imperfections, exuberant infantile gems which smell of teenage spirit. Apparently, these collection of tracks were recorded in 2011-2012, before ‘Unknown Vectors’. If so, there’s a clear development in Runge’s music which hints at even better things.

This album probably takes the current wave of abstract, instrumental grime as far as it needs to go. But where it's been taken is pretty great. Like somebody performing a particularly complex martial art routine on you, this hits you everywhere at once, leaves you reeling, slightly confused but kinda wanting the experience again. After a bit of a lie down.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's not to say the album is entirely abstract as there are fantastic beats, and simple melodies that range from ominous ... 5 Sept. 2014
By Lee Vallier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
This album contains many short but memorable tracks, each lasting at most 4 and a half minutes. The beats are choppy, the bass booms. What I received from the album, atmosphere-wise, was me being put into a state of semi-awareness. My mind becomes cloudy and the tracks themselves seem to be surrounded in a mysterious haze. The percussive elements on this album are hard to describe, the only sound you would be familiar with is the bass drums, the rest are blips, blops, cracks, and hazy white noises. That's not to say the album is entirely abstract as there are fantastic beats, and simple melodies that range from ominous to a sort of eerie ambiance.

The real winners on this album, in my opinion are, "Meshes" "Great God Pan" and "I Don't".

Meshes, is a dark, twisted, "dance"scape. A fabulous beat carried through with dissonant percussive metallic hits, a hi-hat that is druken mess, and sweeps of white noises. Probably the most ominous yet groovy track on the album.

The second of which, "Great God Pan" screams ambiguity and sadness, with the lead synths abrasiveness. More choppy beats in this track that have 0 flow and quickly cut out and come back in which actually seems like it wouldn't work, but works well. The mysterious surrealness of this track makes the listener stare with mental images of their own to accompany the track.

'I Don't" is a full out attack on the bass drum. The lead synth makes the track swirl in and out of a slow to fast tempo. Beeps accompany the bass drums in their constant panning and add a further melodic element. This is yet another mysterious track that seems to have some sort of depressive element.

I am looking forward to more from Mr. Sd Laika.

5.0 out of 5 stars An artist on the verge of discovering new ground. 28 Nov. 2015
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl
Wow, it's been awhile since I've heard an album that has changed my perspective on music and has actually had me actively engaged in the music from beginning to end. This is a giant mess of sounds, needles and sharp objects. You can almost feel the textures as they wash into your brain through your ears. This is a beautiful disgusting mess. If you are a fan of music in general, find a song from this record, sit back and just listen. This is some of the most abrasive music I've heard in a long time.
