Boomkat Product Review:
Freeform noise rock hooligans Shit And Shine open this latest opus with the extremely spooked 'Creepy Ballerina', a track that plays the same game as all those horror movie soundtracks that involve treated recordings of children singing. That sort of uneasy restraint comes to an abrupt end pretty soon though, as the band tear up their fuzzy, dislocated instruments across the ensuing tirade of metallic funk tracks and industrialised bassline monsters. Key to this album's success is the fact that there are plenty of moments that catch you off-guard: after the radiophonic strangeness of 'Charlade' comes the all-out noise white wash of 'Cigarette Sequence', a piece that sounds at ease straddling the increasingly narrow divide between the American noise underground and Nordic black metal. Not entirely at odds with that aesthetic is 'High Brooms', which sounds how SunnO))) might were they to set aside their instruments in favour of vacuum cleaners. It lasts the entirety of the third side, and frankly would be impossible to follow with anything but the gnarled madness of 'The Rabbit Song', which also sprawls itself across the full twelve inches, over on the flipside. By no means an album for the faint of heart, Cherry is a real test of endurance, and indeed your mental health, but for those of you who are likely to respond favourably to a 75 minute aural sandblasting (in the funkiest possible way, that is) this is a pretty unmissable release.
