Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Diskrepant – Into Sleep
Into Sleep’s title is very apt title as you’re lowered into a subtle electronic/noise sound world that seems to exists between realities of dreamscapes and real life. Sound elements and half heard melodies dance by but nothing is ever 100 per clear- giving the whole album a hazy slightly blurred feeling, almost making you feel like you want pinch your self to see if your asleep or awake.

Akercocke – Antichrist
With Antichrist Akercocke have found the perfect balance between brutality,atmosphere and progressive/experimental elements to make an album that’s enjoyable and surprising from start to finish.

People Like Us & Ergo Phizmiz – Perpetuum Mobile
Perpetuum Mobile is full to its quirky, bizarre and sometimes tiring brim with kids show like looped brass tunes, strummed Hawaiian guitar waltz’s, stuck cracking piano loops and all manner of snatched easy listing audio chesse. With all manner rhythmic elements, plundetronics and surreal advert or stage show singing over the top.

Zonder – Maybe you can live on the moon in the next century
The American trio Zonder (Dutch for ‘without’) presents a version of heavy rock that needs a few spins to grab you. The music is dense with all kinds of influences, performed with a raw energy.

10 – UFO
I previously reviewed an EP by this Korean/Japanese project by the same name, but this is a full album called UFO. Things haven’t changed much since then, but that doesn’t mean this is worth a listen.

Far Corner – Endangered
Rock is serious business. Well, not really, but by getting it out the sweaty clubs or screaming stadiums this so-called ‘chamber rock’ has acquired the more serious air of classical and contemporary composed music. Yet, while listening to Endangered you’ll find a serious amount of fun as well.
