Demdike Stare - Collision
Demdike Stare’s Myspace page informs readers that one half of this two-man crew is also part of a duo called “Pendle Coven” and the other is the “dedicated digger behind the Haxan events”. If that’s not weird enough to put you off their music, then their granular synths, static hisses, and ultra-compressed percussion might be just your thing. This release, off Modern Love, is their first in some time and part of a daring new direction for the occult enthusiasts, one that leads into the jungle – or at the very least, the heart of darkness – with hints of industrial and break.
