Various – Songs For Dying (PJORN72)

4 stars
The local Noiserati and associates’ recent reclaiming of their Techno
and/or Metal roots helped their clan avoid a nihilistic dead end. As
this bumper fifteen track compendium of clings, clangs, sci-fi
slapstick, sepulchral drones, lysergic loveliness, ghosts in the
machine anthropological excavations and other light and shade metal
machine music suggests, things remain in the blartiest of health. Nackt
Insecten, Blood Stereo, Jazzfinger, Culver, Dead Labour Process, UFO
Antler Band and others produce an array of increasingly subtle,
artfully mature and largely low-key meditations. All oddly
life-affirming, even as it sometimes trips the shit out of you.
