SISTER IODINE

Blame

(Premier Sang - 008) LP $14.50

Just as the sound of the city invades every synapse of your brain, the fifth album by Sister Iodine scrapes around the inside of your skull. Gasoline goo oozes from your broken ribs, and Lionel Fernandez, Erik Minkkinen and Nicolas Mazet are there sucking on the bitter black blood drips. The pestilent vacuum of your lungs, the dirty little nostril hair, and the burnt larynx — all are penetrated by the rusty screams of this French no-wave / experimental band. As you walk on the white asphalt of the underpath, the ceramic tiles crackle and break, and the oscillator echoes your last foot steps. Your hands melt the snow as it falls, and Sister Iodine gnaws at every fiber of your cement carcass. Protoplasmic blast and insect bite, Blame is on you. 350-gram vinyl. Edition of 400. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2013
