Boomkat Product Review:
First new solo material from Martin Gore in half a decade, packs a gnarled tang where it matters.
‘The Third Chimpanzee EP’ holds Martin L. Gore’s first outing since the eponymous ‘MG’ album in 2015, and arrives 40 years since his earliest roles as one of DM’s founding members and primary songwriters. The five tracks pay testament to a perennially searching spirit still in the process of hunting for the perfect synthetic sound arrangements, but taking “perfect” to mean strangely expressive and uniquely textured synthesis, as generated by his formidable racks of gear.
Melodic and harmonic pop conventions are out of the window, and replaced by a taste for rawest elemental synthesis in all five parts, turning up some heavily satisfying grot recalling Wolf Eyes’ trip metal styles in ‘Howler’, and a ruddy sort of electro-dub chug on ‘Vervet’, along with some curled eastern tunings in ‘Capuchin’, and the elegiac fanfare of ‘Howler’s End.’
We bow down MG.
