more walls broken down to the sounds of purring kittens,
This review is from: CREATURE COMFORTS (Audio CD)
well, maybe not kittens, but this is again another total breakdown of all that black dice has done before. gone are the brutal screams and layers of noise. gone are the psycadelic noodlings and tin cans. and in come the bleeps and blips of the local deformed feline population
in other words, its totally different to beaches and canyons. this time there seems to be a more relaxed and chilled approach. the band are as loose as can be, yet the structure is still there. The stunning track on here is creature. during the eight miutes, this track goes from basic electronica topounding tribal drums to purring animals and the rustling of branches. its like the soudtrack to a jungle treck, yet its not at the same time. and like all black dice releases, its so so organic. somehow its not right, but somehow its totally perfect. with each release black dice seem to be hurtling closer and closer towards the sky...not looking where they are going, always arriving in the wrong place and direction, yet somehow quite satisfied with the music that has emerged along the way.
and i think thats really clever...
