SNOW, WHITE NOISE & ESPLENDOR
Imprisoned by snow, I'm delving into the ESPLENDOR GEOMETRIC0 BOX that recently arrived from Geometrik Records in Madrid (thanks Andres!). Filled with abrasive noise, pummeling electronically-abused beats combined with prehistoric voice samples, Esplendor Geometrico produce a compelling miasma both frightening and joyful! Japan's Captain Trips Records have done a masterful job remastering this 5-cd set, giving new life to what were originally lo-fi cassette recordings...they are now magnificent in their sonic power suggesting the powerful train illustrated on the box cover...muy bien!
