Solo project of Campbell Kneale, formerly Birchville Cat Motel, and 1/2 of Black Boned Angel. A double disc of forward thinking soundscapes, texture manipulation, and sonic mindtricks. Packaged in an oversized 5.5” square folder with two art inserts and music spanning two discs, each in an envelope.
Infusing a droney drift, with industrial rhythms, metallic riffs, textural buzz, blown out crunch, all manner of hum and howl and skree and clatter and clang, which like many things, in the hands of someone less deft, could be and most likely would be a massive sonic clusterfuck, but [Campbell] Kneale, like some insane sonic juggler, manages to herd all these sounds into a constantly evolving shape, not that it's not a struggle, part of the joy comes from listening to the various sounds and elements and layers do battle, the magic happens when what sounds like pure noise, suddenly reveals itself as a lumbering doomic drone, or a weirdly melodic drift, what sounds like random bits of crunch, suddenly take shape and become rhythm, what sounds like a wall of heaving low end, becomes melodic, and suddenly things seem strangely songlike, and [...] sort of pretty.
