Boomkat Product Review:
Jugular noise techno hurl n burl from NYC/Den Haag’s Nick Klein, cutting back to Luke Younger’s Alter for a definitively gristly shock of sludge beats, rictus acid and serotonin-depleted ambient nodding to his neighbours at Bunker.
Nick Klein channels classic Bunker on this one, and we ain't complaining. It’s possible to draw lines between his bullish collision of noise and hard bitten industrial techno traditions and the legendary Den Haag sound of Shitcluster or Acid Planet, and thru to US rhythmic noise heads like Beau Wanzer and Container, while also packing one dead sweet beat-less moment reminding us of Helm’s weathered ambient noise.
The album is loosely framed as a biographical account and delivered by Klein in his signature harsh vernacular of biting-point noise and thuggish drum pulses, yet there’s also a newfound subtlety in its best parts. Kicking off with a teeth-grinding statement of intent ‘Sitting On Glass’, he comes off like a demented Syncom Data in ‘A Bundle And Some Speakers’ and the ‘floor-chewing 303s of ’Bed Sore Acid’, and really dances on your nerve endings with the rictus EBM noise grinder ‘Over Before You Noticed’, but the lushly burned out surprise of ‘French-Property.com’ really sets the lot off as a proper full-length listen and we'd say amounts to the best that we’ve heard from him.
