barnacles

Ostensibly more insular in tone and delivery that his recent outing for Boring Machines, this was nearly the one that got away, by Barnacles via the Arell imprint this is the ominously stilled ‘the evening news’. In short a 15 minute journey in micro sonic psychosis, both brooding and bleak you can almost feel the shivery touch of the overwhelming tension and sense of eerie disquiet dripping from this, amid its minimalist sound fissures a grimly grinning fusion of jazz noir chamber electronics peers out of the shadows etched in primitive radiophonic motifs gorged upon by squirreling string recitals, the effect is sombre and funereal yet all the same curiously alluring especially at the 11.00 minute whereupon matters take on a somewhat sunnier disposition with the intricate harvesting of bowed arrangements adoring it with an almost Set Fire to Flames / Constellation records late 90’s era back catalogue vibing. https://arell.bandcamp.com/album/the-evening-news-preview
