Boomkat Product Review:
Intensely defined yet mercurial mutations of B-More, industrial and vaporous sonics, fresh out of L.A. RIYL Aaron David Ross, Steven Warwick, ÈLG
Italy’s Hundebiss scores a third LP-shaped hit from Jaws, the reality-based sound and performance project project of Robert ‘Sex Boyz’ Girardin. Object Dom follows the trajectory of Girardin’s two previous albums for Hundebiss, throwing a messy assortment of rave signifiers through his digital mangler, resulting in a charmingly DIY 12-track collection. Add to this, some obtuse track titles and subversive thematic discourse on the social media age - The Stream is Girardin tackling the politics surrounding online notifications for example.
Anyway, from opener Boouncer onwards, Object Dom is a pretty intense trip before JAWS wisely drops a breather with Powerstructures which builds a nice steamy head of Prurient-gone-digital drama out of nothing. From there on, Girardin toys with the seams of ‘ardcore and pop with compelling if occasionally head-scratching results. If Beau Wanzer grew up as a digital native in LA obsessed with gabba he might sound like JAWS.
