The Pleasure of a Systemic Shock

A glitch track by Lord of Overstock

It’s a pleasure to listen to this glitch piece by Lord of Overstock, “HHstairsC,” as it slowly accumulates mass, as it gingerly locates a central pulse. The piece ends where it begins, with a series of digital shudders and twitchy breaks. In between there is a rattling, distant percussion, and a series of off-kilter rhythmic slaps. The core of the piece is a sequence of minor systemic shocks that begin as a semblance of errors and, true to glitch, become a form of purpose unto itself.
