Boomkat Product Review:
White Noise is the musical lovechild of producer David Vorhaus and electronic music pioneer Delia Derbyshire.
On the surface, there's little to connect this to Delia's best known work as part of the Radiophonic Workshop - White Noise is at its core a psychedelic record, albeit with some incredible electronic production. The Silver Apples or the United States of America (considered by some to be White Noise's US equivalent) would be good reference points.
Check the opening: vocoded vocals, epic soundscapes, clattering percussion and the kind of layered production that Stereolab and Broadcast would end up making their own years later. Hard to believe that this album was recorded in 1969 - it's an innovative, genre-bending album that's been a huge influence on a myriad artists on the scene (Surgeon even sampled some bits..) - proper classic then.
