Boomkat Product Review:
Another curveball from the Not Not Fun camp, ‘Human Fly’ pits Wolf Eyes noisenik Nate Young against veteran garage punk drummer Dave Shettler and while their collaborative moniker might be a little zany, their brand of dancefloor-ready industrial/techno variations is tough to ignore. Veering from hazy EBM-flecked speed garage (we’re not kidding, take a listen) on the title track to Chicago bleep on the zonked ‘Cyber Rebels’ there’s a sense that Young and Shettler are not only well studied but also seem to be having fun in the process. ‘Human Fly’ never sounds like an exercise in genre tourism - it sounds like the acid-laced basement party it absolutely should be, and it’s thanks to Not Not Fun that we’ve got yet another record to soundtrack our fidgeting discontent. Humid, heavy and f*cking essential.
