Boomkat Product Review:
On ‘Sepsis’, we find the regular Sissy Spacek duo of John Wiese and Corydon Ronnau joined by a veritable ensemble of LA’s finest experimental operatives. Underrated guitar damager Peter Kolovos, 16 Bitch Pile Up’s Shannon Walter, Damion Romero, Mitchell Brown, LAFMS’s Rick Potts and The Locust’s Joey Karam all team up in a studio setting to create one of the band’s most engaging electro-acoustic sets to date. ‘Sepsis’ is far from the chop-up splatter-punk of the band’s early releases, rather it owes more to worlds of musique concrete and improvised academia. That’s not to say this music is cold and staid either, however – these pieces develop like creeping molasses and peak with cascades of tiny explosions. Listen carefully – those expecting a noise onslaught will likely be caught off guard, and this time around God is in the details. Recommended.
