Boomkat Product Review:
SM-LL's latest shadowy UAN deployment is a Jelinek/faitiche-style ultra-minimalist set of giddy locked grooves and buzzing, dubwise industrial textures that'll surely appeal to fans of Pan Sonic or Vladislav Delay, or Lary 7's eccentric mechanical music.
There's no point in trying to work out who these records come from at this stage, they just exist and that's that. UAN's 27th installment is groggier and more narcotic than many of its more pneumatic predecessors and it makes for a refreshing shift. 'Total incarceration vulnerabilities' is just over 10 minutes of collapsed sub-bass womps, psychedelic whirls and looped vinyl crackle that sounds as if it's repeating itself until you realize it's changed completely.
'Prefigurative rhythm' is icier, more reduced and more terrifying, assembling rugged, echoing bumps beneath a fuzzing wall of radio static and faint watch battery bleeps. It's easy to compare this gear to Pan Sonic or to Mika Vainio's treasured solo full-lengths, but this one's wobblier - drinking just as much juice from Sasu Ripatti's early Mille Plateaux albums 'Entain' and 'Anima'. Deep and alliterative, it's gear that sounds like a room full of broken machines and hotwired clocks trapped in a broken automated sequence - destructive, basically.
