Corruption in Full

Emanations from Funabashi, Japan

More from Corruption, whose presence in music is of the sort that may best suit SoundCloud’s existence — that may be of the sort that is the result of SoundCloud’s existence.

Perhaps collectively they form some meta-canvas. “Norma,” the latest of Corruption’s output, is echoed burbles of throaty synth. As an assessment of range, “Tirth” is slomo solo piano, like a broken android Nils Frahm Pinocchio straining for sentience. And “Soak” is weirdly warbly, like a future kalimba designed by Laurie Anderson:
