Boomkat Product Review:
Austrialia's Gardland duo debut a mystic, frayed sort of techno primitivism with the classy but rudimentary grooves and etheric electronics of 'Syndrome Syndrome', their first LP for RVNG Intl. Their music exists in a curious modern context between the edge-bleeding post-techno of Blondes, the more mutant end of 100% Silk, and the stripped, modulated techno minimalism of Rrose - too grotty to be called techno proper, too canny to be called "outsider", existing in a unique position somewhere between worlds. Its 13 tracks take shape as impressionistic, alien techno scapes, hovering into focus with the amorphous noise and lolling bass waves of 'Grrone' and feeling out backyard techno grooves in 'Syndrome Syndrome' before revealing a cannier, club-wise style with the gloomy, hypnotic after-hours techno of cuts like 'Katarakt' and 'Ode to Ode', whilst pieces such as 'Trepan Heke' or 'Success To Circuit' hew closer to a grubbier, psychedelic and lo-fi aesthetic akin to the Opal Tapes sound or bits by Diamond Catalog. Essentially it's the best of both worlds, the crisper, effective contours of proper soundsystem-ready techno, and the spiked psychedelia and textural, tonal qualities of the weirder stuff.
