K.K. Rampage / Metalux
(Rampage) split LP $16.00
Metalux continues their refinement of creepily serene noise arrangements and free-floating modern psychedelia. Voices are treated as another instrument in an amorphous wash of sound among atmospheric keys and harsh electronics. K.K. Rampage -- Chicago's confrontational, rabble-rousing, NO(w) wave misfits -- replace their piercingly, de-tuned Arab-on-Rabar-esque guitars and “pop” beats with sinister, mechanical chaos and throbbing spastic drumming. A truly fascinating album that improves with repeated listening. Limited to 400 copies.
