Boomkat product review for:

vindicatrix - Mengamuk

'Mengamuck' is the highly anticipated debut album proper from ever-enigmatic artiste, David Aird aka Vindicatrix. Arriving towards the end of a golden year for Mordant Music, it's quite possibly one of the label's finest achievements, and no doubt Vindictarix's most impressive opus from a small, singular catalogue counting that Michael Jackson cover/tribute 'Hume' and sought-after mini-album 'Die Alten Bösen Lieder' since 2009. We'll assume that many of our customers are familiar with this work - we've hopefully sung his praises enough in the past - but, if not, imagine a younger, contemporary mixture of Alan Vega or David Sylvian's haunting baritone, the decimated electronics of Ekoplekz, a dash of etheric NWW weirdness and the blackest UK bass abstractions, and you're within grasping distance of his idiosyncratic oeuvre. In the short time we've spent with 'Menagmuck' we've fallen hard for its dark charms, captivated by both Aird's uncanny delivery and equally his increasingly layered, diffuse soundscaping and involving, revealing rhythmic arrangements - from trill to house to dubstep - played out from a matrix of tape loops, synth and FX. As always, Baron Mordant put it most succinctly: " Mengamuk seeps out from a Camberwell garret via the sweet sea scum of Terrengganu via a faint dusting of eczema via the DLR via distempered brass via engorged staves via broiled nuance via priapic 16ths via gentlemanly conduct via binary quicksand via Basingstoke via Beyer via a short in the spoken word via herring via industrial climes via salt via a fucking good slap round the chops via Korg via taxi highwaymen via viols & vials...once again Vindicatrix smears the air with the heady scent of amok…BM". Time will tell, but we reckon this has to be a nomination for one of the year's most outstanding sides, in a category all of its own.
