COREPHALLISM: s/t 3” CD Lascivious Aesthetics
Has to be said, I haven’t heard much of this artist until this neat little 3” and 10” vinyl dropped through the door and I am more than impressed.
This little 2 tracker comprises of ‘Speaking in Tongues’ and ‘These Scars Will Last a Lifetime’. Both display a good ear for a perfect blend of Dark Ambient and Power Electronics; the latter track providing the more brutal output of the two and relying less than its colleague on drone-work.
Personally I do prefer it when Broderick concentrates his effort on his pad-work, as this is where he ultimately shines. Unfortunately there is less on this CD of this formula than on his split extended player with Gnaw Their Tongues, but none-the-less I am quite partial to some blistering noise now and again and this mini episode more than whets the pallet.
With such a small offering to review when it comes to releases of this nature it’s a struggle to really go in depth, but all I can say is that you should check this guy out and pick up the 10” for a better representation of what he can do.
