Quote from: Baglady on July 13, 2021, 11:03:32 PMUMPIO - Kulotus 2CD (Hiisi & Narcolepsia, 2021)Umpio has always dabbled with modular and no input sounds, or at least on all releases I have, but I wasn't quite prepared for this. This is purely oscillator, modular and no input, assembled from tape recordings done over a ten year period. He covers the spectrum from volcanic eruption to restrained rippling, always with maximum pressure and energy. There's not a dull second here, but if I'd have to pick a favorite it's the fifteen minute bulge fest "Glass Crunch Snack" from disc one where he lets the sounds skid, slide, screech and stammer in a lovely way while low end explosions keep things moving (fast!). Best yet so far this year for me. Fans of Keränen's superb Bats in the Attic take note in particular, and T.A.D.M. fans even more so (in a blind test I'd definitely take "Phantom Pulse" on disc one for a T.A.D.M track), but any fan of inventive harsh noise needs this.
