Boomkat Product Review:
After the unfathomable runaway success of the Buddha Machine in the last 6 months, there could be no better time for its creators to release their offering to Staalplaat’s hugely collectible Mort Aux Vaches series. As you can imagine, this is packaged as beautifully as ever, housed in sparkling patterened brown card with embossed gold text. The music also comes as no surprise; the gorgeous dense and decomposing drones which have made the Buddha Machine so irresistible are here in full force, albeit this time spread across 45 minutes rather than 10 seconds. I don’t need to describe just how compelling this music is, chances are you’ve heard the Buddha Machine loops, left it by your bed at night and drifted into the spiritual world of Chinese Temple drone – if you haven’t then it’s high time you did. Recommended for any fans of the recent Headz releases from Jim O’Rourke and Nikos Veliotis or the addictive realm of William Basinski; this blanket of crystalline sound is something you’ll want to wrap up with no matter what the weather is like.
