mika vainio - FE3O4 - Magnetite

There are few contemporary musicians who have had as much of an impact on us as Mika Vainio, so each new release is always cause for celebration. Whether exploring the grim underbelly of the electric guitar on 'Life (... It Eats You Up)' or haunted minimalism in his collaboration with Kevin Drumm and friends on 'Venexia', Vainio somehow manages to throw us into a state of awe consistently time and time again. 'FE3O4 - Magnetite' manages to uphold this quality but takes a stylistic about turn, exploring the two poles of noise and silence, finding Vainio explore distortion and contrast in a way he hasn't for many years now. Radio static emerges from almost nothing, sounds appear for a second and are gone and cables are established and removed without warning. This dynamic is offset by Vainio's well-documented expertise with very loud drones, and the drones we're treated to on 'FE3O4' are louder and more intense than you're likely to find almost anywhere else. Sub bass tones tear through the silence heralded only by small pops, and wavering, distorted oscillators cut and slice like a lone machete in a dark night. This is often terrifying music, but thanks to Vainio's calm hand it never devolves into mere theatrics. Rather the sounds are so well paced and expertly handled that you feel like you are being treated to the work of a pioneer, and someone whose work is a direct descendent of Bernard Parmegiani, Luciano Berio and Throbbing Gristle. Incredible music, and yet another totally unmissable full-length from Mika Vainio.
