Industrial Collage (MP3s)

Underground beats undergirded with hushed portent

The album Au​-​Delà by Usher and Zreen Toyz brings to mind the early industrial music of Consolidated, Meat Beat Manifesto, and Psychic TV: underground beats undergirded with hushed portent. The set’s four tracks make steady beats seem unsteady by layering in found sounds and muffled vocalizing. As the album proceeds, beats give way, in “Ectoplasmes,” to an anxious haze of broken chimes, backward masked wisps, and shuddering near-subaural drones. The record was released by the Inner Cinema label, more from which at inner-cinema.com.

Get the full set as a free download at innercinema.bandcamp.com. More from Toyz at arcanewaves.blogspot.com.
