ALBERT TROSS, LEADER OF THE DEMONS – ‘RELAX’

a0510283344_10

‘Butchered rock music.’ Horrible loops from what were once songs, reworked into a manky toupée of annoyance and unease. It’s very headachy and paranoia inducing, not at all relaxing or nice to listen to. Many of samples looped seem to have been chosen for these upsetting qualities. Then, a couple of minutes into the second track, the paranoia sound downshifts into an echoing, dank cellar atmosphere, with repetitious chirps and clicks swirling around in a sweaty comedown,  and then the whole thing slithers away into the darkness. Nauseous and altogether fucking upsetting, without ever actually being explicitly offensive or controversial in subject matter. Relax, indeed.
