Following engaging releases from Mika Vainio and Crazy Bitch In A Cave, Vienna's Comfortzone presents a darker episode from BiP_HOp label owner Philippe Petit and Lydia Lunch. It's the second time in less than 12 months we've found Petit working with an (in)famous female vocalist, trailing last years chilling 7" with Cosey Fanni Tutti, and this outing is no less unnerving. 'Return To Backworld' is a sombre instrumental opener for piano and glitched electronics, before 'Requiescat' introduces Lydia's croaked vocal over droning, discordant strings and bleak, glooming drones. The centrepiece is surely the sumptuous ten minute composition 'Black Spring', entering a nether region of slowly waking symphonic strings and 4th world ambience woven around Lydia's dystopian narrative. Excellent.
