Wet Electric – Wet Electricity, Volume 1

In an uncanny series of events, Wet Electric‘s latest album art features an old-school computer, just like Ellen Kirkwood’s [A]part (which is amazing, by the way).

Suess – 10 der größten Schlagerhits aller Zeiten

The Music

It is not every day that I am speechless in front of new music.

Coming from the same master brain as Zombieshark!, Data Pagan takes the glitch aesthetics and artificial aspects of cybergrind to impressive heights. I once said that the album sounds like a less gorey, but still as fantastically contorted, as Mulk, which is high praise. This is quite a fun album!
