Industri-Organic Scape MP3s

The Kikapu netlabel usually leavens its ambience with beats, often bringing them to the foreground. However, for much of Sieve‘s recent Vacuum-Assisted, you might be hard put to distinguish the beats from mere static in the ether; others bring to mind biological processes. Its four tracks are industrial-organic scapes of dready background stuff. What distinguishes it is that most of the sounds remain fairly close at hand, like the gloomy “Cold” (MP3), with its heartbeat murmurs and breathy rhythm, and “Void” (MP3), which could be mistaken for footsteps around the next corridor … well, if you happen to already be on a dank, neglected space station.
