Boomkat Product Review:
Still rough-round the edges like a block of aural-concrete, the Somatic boys are back with a brand new LP that takes their abrasive electronica and plugs it directly into the mains... The sibling duo of John and Paul Healy, Somatic Responses broadly fall into the pen which houses the likes of Venetian Snares, Knifehandchop and Exile - wherein broad palates of midnight-beats and threatening atmospherics are fed to the dogs in an orgy of disrupted digitalis goodness. Opening with the sprawling soundscape of 'Split' (think Zan Lyons before the fireworks began), the Healy boys don't hold out on the beats for long - with the mighty posturing of 'B Boy 3000' more than sating the rhythmical appetite. Verging on the cusp of Alec Empire territory, 'B Boy 3000' declines from crumbling into all out chaos thanks to some tethered foundations that keep the mood carbonated as opposed to death-threat - a situation played out throughout 'Giauzar'. Grand in scale without relying on needless posturing, tracks like 'Germ', 'Heliuminum' and 'Shell' coax out the cinematic from the wires, evoking the memory of John Carpenter as viewed through bullet-shattered glass. Veering briefly into Drexciya territory for the penultimate 'Strangulartk Robot', Somatic Responses see you out on a swirling bed of synth clouds, bring to close an album which proves the ruptured hard-drives of broken-beated chaos can still elicit emotions beyond those of confused tedium. Music: Response.
