Boomkat Product Review:
The legacy of Muslimgauze is handled with reverent care and attention by Anders Peterson on four deeply atmospheric reworks for Staalplaat. Also known as Relapxych.0, Peterson was undertaking a large-scale project transferring and remastering the stockpile of unreleased Muslimgauze gear when he was tasked to apply his sought-after studio skills (favoured by V.O.D and Staalplaat) to these four archival pieces. In effect, Anders amplifies and enhances the more atmospheric elements with lush, widescreen strokes rendering the subtlest sounds to the peripheries while galvanizing the percussion, but only slightly rearranging the original rhythms. This updated fidelity only serves to render the similarities between Bryn Jones and Shackleton in ever sharper clarity and, and simply makes this a huge recommendation for fans of Raime, Cut Hands, Vatican Shadow - all of that good stuff. Highly recommended!
