Check Out Beard Bates’ Brilliantly Brutal ‘The Netherworld of Love’
FFO: Thom Yorke, Aphex Twin
Label: Studio Records Group America
The third taste of Beard Bates‘ upcoming album The World Is Blown, ‘The Netherworld of Love’ is a blurring of all things dark, distorted, and disorientating. Emerging from a cage of chaos, a vocal line is heard singing through static. We can only snatch fragments – a fact which makes us listen all the more intently, despite the electrical buzz saw which surrounds our ears. ‘The Netherworld of Love’ is a land of limbo: we catch snatches of psych, elements of electro, and pieces of percussion, but all of which sound at once, creating a carnival of the chaotic. Listen if you dare!
