Hermit / Thirdorgan Dead-tech Machine Gallery [CD]

Tax included

A split and collaboration CD between Canduh's Hermit and Japan’s ThirdOrgan, featuring home and live recordings and two tracks where one project remixes the other. As expectable, it’s mostly a harsh-electronics orgy, especially in the collective tracks and in ThirdOrgan's 20-something minute tour-de-force closing the CD. While I appreciated these tracks, I believe the CD is best represented by Hermit’s opening ‘Pain Machine’ (with droning, quasi-peaceful pulses) and the truly surprising ‘It’s A Long Way To Demark’, based on melancholic piano and voice loops with unobtrusive background electronic noises. Really well done and a pleasant detour from harsh orthodoxy
