After appearances on a few labels, SHXCXCHCXSH have made Avian their home issuing a couple of releases in the lead up to their debut album STRNGTHS. Across all this output, the unpronounceable Swedish pair has cultivated a singularly skewed brand of techno, mixing up the increasingly popular template of industrial-edged, noisy techno with brittle, syncopated rhythms and flecks of psychedelia-inducing acid. Largely eschewing the usage of vowels, their track titles occasionally sound phonetically like feral cries of yelping pain, and fans of this approach will delight in their return to Avian with the three track VVVLLLLVVV. The title track is perhaps SHXCXCHCXSH at their most playful, focused around a rubbery synth line that pulses with dark energy, whilst the unrelenting final track "MRRRCHNNNN" is apparently the sonic model for how Avian are looking to proceed throughout 2014. Hold tight!
