Boomkat Product Review:
This album by erratic no-wavers Von Spar shifts away from the more sugary end of Tomlab's indie/electronic pop output and embraces a harsher, noisier mindset, with a freewheeling, anything-goes approach that doesn't shy away from protracted riff odysseys and schizophrenic genre hopping. At times this album sounds more like it might in fact be a mix, featuring a range of different artists. The first of two long pieces, 'Xaxapoya' opens with an occultish choral drone, accompanied by quickening drum rhythms, slowly gathering steam while spooky Giallo soundtrack synths strike up in the background. Von Spar somehow make a transition from these Goblin-styled passages into a piece of Rapture-style indie disco with screeching vocals. Next up is 'Dead Voices In The Temple Of Error' which flirts with spooky ambience and psych atmospherics before launching full-steam ahead into prog/doom/wtf? metal carnage. In the album's final moments there's a stretch of electronic collage nonsense to throw you even further off the scent. It's very hard to say what these clowns are playing that, but it's quite a trip if you fancy going along for the ride.
