Manhunter

(Kye - KYE22) LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

The Australian duo’s previous work, Palisades (Sabbatical, 2009) and Paper Fault Line (Bocian, 2011), showcase a gestural and timbrally rich music, bristling with keen detail and sharp edits. Manhunter stands in stark contrast — an ebbing two-part suite for waning grayscale electronics, dehumanized drum machine, amorphous vocal fragments, and sundry devices, woven together in a fabric of despair. The exquisite bleakness of Manhunter ties it to La Mutazione, Abandoned Cities, Theme From Hunger, and other great downer classics of yore. Edition of 400.
