Boomkat Product Review:
Wolf Eyes’ Nate Young fudges around on his new set-up in ‘Volume Two: Nightshade’, the 2nd in a series of new solo releases on Lower Floor
In eight (mostly) succinct parts he indulges a primitivist approach to his modular synths and FX, resulting misshaped creation that sound a bit like ambient, industrial, and synth soundtracks, but not quite.
With classic Wolf Eyes style, they all sound off-the-cuff, coughed up in one go while possibly blindfolded. The result variously sound like a blind man trying to break his way out of a huge water tank with a spanner one minute, then like a kid who found an old keyboard and sequencer luckily plugged into an amp, or Container working off dying batteries.
