Contrasts – Kiasmos and DUST

Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    By coincidence, I’ve been listening to Agony Planet this week. It has moments that make me feel like I might be in a club in the late 90s.Report

      I love it. I think it’s really well done and has a great flow, and it’s vaguely-reminiscent to me of a lot of things (at times, I’ve thought of The Knife’s Silent Shout, or Nitzer Ebb) without really being explicitly-derivative of any of them. A bad-vibes toe-tapper.Report

        so i think dust is fairly derivative (particularly nitzer ebb or laetherstrip or any of the late 90s industrial/ebm stuff, as well as a significant touch of the regis/surgeon/silent servant mids aughties hard tech) – but inventively so, if that makes any sense? it’s well done, so much like kiasmos it breaks no new ground but instead cultivates a very nice garden.

        eta: also she sings like the dude from burzum which is something i don’t know why more people haven’t done as far as chocolate/peanut butter combos go. sutekh hexen and not much else, and they’re not very tech-y at all in any sense. genghis tron, but not really.Report
