Boomkat Product Review:
A sequel of sorts to the famous Gothenburg 84 LP (featuring the likes of CM Von Hausswolff and Zbigniew Karkowski) released by Radium 226.05 in 1984, this new compilation from Fang Bomb showcases the current crop of artists on the Swedish city's experimental scene. Certain names will already be familiar to readers of these pages, and contributions from Porn Sword Tobacco and Jasper TX undoubtedly stand out - particularly the former, whose vintage synthscapes really capture the imagination on 'Feminin Arkitektur'. Elsewhere, noisier climes are occupied by The Skull Defekts, Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words and the brilliant Sewer Election, whose 'Mot Doden' is an especially pleasing exercise in subdued textural noise sculpting. Further props should be dished out to Anders Dahl, whose detailed micro-electroacoustics exude class on 'Stratta, Flockblomstriga 4', Recommended.
