Boomkat Product Review:
Nate Young (Wolf Eyes) and David Shettler (Viands) converge a lesser heard, cranky brand of Detroit electronics with their 3rd and best-yet side as Moon Pool and Dead Band for Chicago’s Midwich Productions. In Humanizer a lot of the fug from previous instalments feels congealed in more viscous synth sounds, and the drums more often demand, where they used to imply. But fret not; they’re still a pair of weirdos and their music sounds like it.
The ten minute whirligig of sickly eldritch melody and lop-sided breaks in New British Blues is perhaps an acute perception of blighty’s modern mindset, sharing much in common with the salty optimism of Hospital Quiet, whilst the braver DJs and ravers will find something to chew on with the early ‘90s techno-sounding jag of Cycloid and a super sub-heavy sort of industrial mulch called A Gray Glow, whereas Sea Dust’s fractious tangle and the distended wobbler, Humanizer fulfil their early records’ gnarliest promise and sounds most alike something we’d expect from the great Nate Young.
