“Abomenon”/”Causal”

Short, warped communiqués from Dark Matter

“Abomenon” is a short, slurry mash of moist industrial noise, slowed within an inch of its life and injected with alien voices. It is the perfect anecdote to rote techno, opening with dense, insolent beats and then overcome with vocoded chatter, muffled dialog that gives way to insectoid anxiety. It’s paired with “Causal,” which trades voices for another form of communication, what seems to be the methodical clunk of a manual typewriter, rendered here like some sort of persistent, automated weapon.
