Boomkat Product Review:
Potent cosmic drone rituals from Argentina’s vlubä, distilling atavistic visions of the future thru lower case electronics, free percussion and finely attuned mental energies
A paranormal art project conceived by Müriscia Divinorum and Aphra Cadabra in 2001, vlubä’s music has extensively travelled between dozens of underground psych and weirdo labels and appeared on countless compilations, splits with the likes of Uton, Futurians and Alan Courtis over the years. Their spiralling flight path now intersects with Egypt’s brilliant Nashazphone for this slab of contrasting sides, pairing one heavy hypnagogic induction with a more wigged-out side of free psych spatter and blatz.
The sidelong spiral of ‘A-Mu-Kia (Fur Future)’ projects a vast tract of slowly unfolding drone on the A-side recalling a smudged take on La Monte Young/Marian Zazeela’s ‘The Theatre of Eternal Music’ but imperceptibly keening into tribal drum patter and ultimately dead creepy, quivering microtones recalling the Decimus series. Their B-side however is more shapeshifting, one minute like Smegma with the sucked spittle and curdled tones of ‘Flower Vimanas’, then like an NWW aetherdream in ‘Grape Nation’, while ‘DlenQnnerv Ffwd!’ sounds like Teresa Winter trapped in a Noz loop, and ‘Mü Camel’ could almost be a waterlogged Spencer Clark piece. In other words it’s all trippy af.
