Some music just doesn't fall into any category, with this current release on the peerless Editions Mego certainly being of that disposition. Proposing a near 40 minutes of disemboweled noises, glitchy static and haunting tonalities, Sweden's BJ Nilsen and Stilluppsteypa create their own world - one which is far from our own. "Goda Nott 1" is a long journey into outer space, with its howling drones and meticulous sonics growing and then dissipating uncontrollably. The second excursion into the ether, "Goda Nott 2", although comparatively brighter than the first segment, still refuses to find its way out of the long and obscure tunnel built by the Swedish duo. Growling melodies and long, polyphonic trips make this release perfectly fit for a Stanley Kubrick film. Captivating noise collections.
Editions Mego, one of our favourite electronic labels out there and one of the few game-changers around, drop another bomb-load of sonic artillery in the form of a collaborative EP by Stilluppsteypa, BJ Nilsen and Anla Courtis! Recorded between Berlin, Reykjavik and Buenos Aires, the tracks give the sensation of time space thanks to their aural freedom. "Aurora Australis", for example, sounds like the beginning of a storm, while "Fish Is God" paints a monstrous picture with its odd, mutated voices and freezing cold wall of sound. Stunning.
