Hello Skinny
By Hello Skinny
Released on Slowfoot Records

There is so much to like about the grainy combination of loops and killer live instrumentation on this album it’s hard to know where to start. Tom Skinner aka Hello Skinny wears so many hats on this album that if you tried to guess what was coming next you’ll asking to be proven wrong. In fact, I’ve listened to the whole thing at least 5 times now and I’m still caught off guard by where the album goes. It has the kind of loose form at times you would expect from a jam bad or experimental jazz group, but will then devolve into dubbed out effects reminding you that it is just as much a single mans vision.

Between the warm bass and drum-driven tracks like ‘Crush’, the guitar centric instrumentals of ‘Foot Tap’ and ‘Me and My Lady’, and the electrified craziness of afro-beat meets synthesizer tracks like opener ‘Aquarius’ and my personal favourite ‘Bump’. The aforementioned grain on this album is what I think keeps it together and on the same page, and even when you’re thrown a curveball by the release’s eclectic nature it still maintains a familiar sound. As a bonus for anyone who cares it has a track called Hello Skinny, by Hello Skinny, on Hello Skinny (Iron Maiden anyone?).

Listen with headphones, nod your head, stare off into the darkness when you lose your bearings, nod some more when you find them again. Buy it from the Hello Skinny bandcamp, needless to say I’ve got a copy of the 12″ on its way in the mail.

by Machine Girl
released on Dred Collective in February 2014

Phantasmagoria is Machine Girl’s M.O.
When listening to WLFGRL as a whole, you’ll find yourself careening down a sonically dense, dark hole that intermittently glows with pachinko-esque lights. All the while you aren’t quite sure if the lights are comforting, or if they are perhaps more hostile than the darkness that accompanies the sounds.
And what beautiful sounds they are indeed. The tags found at the bottom the Bandcamp page tell the stories of the influences found in the album, but it’s when they are compounded that they flourish. Tracks like ‘Krystle (URL Cyber Palace Mix)‘ have a Hideki Naganuma/video game music feeling about them. Video game music, but a hardcore juke rendition of the classic video game feel, heavy with amen breaks and gyrating filters. Junglist, acidy synthesizers run rife throughout, though it’s the twinkling, lighter layers that float around these that lift the whole record up and out. Ginger Snap samples also litter the album, taking a psychically dark spirit of the work to a more horror-ific plane, while also extending its visual reach.
Listening to WLFGRL three times in succession can lead to cerebral incertitude. Try not to be too scared.

In the end the wondrous sensory barraging becomes a paranormal gush that you have to just roll with. Dance, if that’s what feels right. Otherwise just lay down, let it all run over you, and be thankful that eight minutes of ‘Hidden Power (Phase δ)‘ comes after five minutes of ‘Excruciating Deth (Phase γ)‘.

Get bit.
