Boomkat Product Review:
By turns bolshy and bashful statements of dub punk and smeared jazz from the time-served post-punk heroes for Blackest Ever Black
“Jac Berrocal, David Fenech and Vincent Epplay return to Blackest Ever Black with their first record since 2015’s Antigravity LP.
Why brings three singular but complementary pieces together on one 7″. The title track is a louche but volatile art-rock panther-stalk…a cracked jazz ode on street hassle pitched somewhere between Vince Taylor-in-exile and PiL’s Metal Box…Berrocal on vocals, a rakish, slurring stream-of-consciousness that becomes a yowl of despair; drums loose and dub-delayed; Fenech’s jagged guitar phrasing set to stun, and Epplay’s electronics set to flay. ‘Ice Exposure’ situates Bef’s mournful, muted trumpet in the sort of eerie deep-freeze ambience that characterised Antigravity, and ‘Alienor en Aout’ coaxes a gloomy poetry from affectless cold war radio broadcasts.
Why are we so strange tonight?”
