ZONE EXHAUSTION Pt. 2


I'm blown away by this solo track from the Ancients' Jon Michell, no fucking shit. This is like some sonic acupuncture the way it's just clamping down on a precise array of sounds that make my brain fucking melt. It definitely sounds exactly like a heap of Blade Runner replicants jamming out on some despondent Devo b-sides but they can't help getting a little krautrocky because of their semi-robotic nature. And shit. There's hints of more recent gloomy new-wavers too, like These New Puritans, but none of that accurately captures this song's amazing last-train-home oppressive vibe. Cool shit.

"Hauntingly beautiful", basically. This track sounds like Cat Power in the 90s when she was still smacked out & writing sad songs (heaps better than the new stuff with the "Dirty Delta Blues Band", amirite?). Totally simplistic guitars let the heart-wrenching vocal layers kick you in the kidneys but it feels so right. If you haven't already downloaded Special Award's new compilation Swan Vs. Raptor, do it now.
