Fresh off an entrancingly weird and uncanny debut tape album for Maine-based label enmossed, Floridian analogue experimentalist Bobby Flan returns to Nick Klein’s Primitive Languages with a wild 7″ in form of homecoming celebration.
Picking up the torch where their first collaboration, ‘Live Performance Tape‘, left off five years ago, ‘Calaesthetics / Cone Of Perversity‘ finds Bobby going full on psycho with the machines, witnessing “how his practical and fluid approaches to recording have evolved his output” over the years. Nonconformist by essence and thought-provoking to the full, Flan’s music ram-raids the main alley house’s thick walls of programmed boredom and forgone, genre-fenced conclusions.
Transcending all kinds of categories to establish a sound as puzzling to the ears as it’s derangedly enjoyable for your brain and legs, our premiere ‘Cone Of Perversity‘ floods the B-side with high-intensity onslaughts of corrosive synth drippings and abrupt rhythmic shifts. Part abstract modularism from a dystopic future, part left-of-centre techno on a heavy drone flex, this one’s equipped with the right amount of pounding heft and oblique elusion to have any dancefloor losing it, literally.
Calaesthetics / Cone Of Perversity is released via Primitive Languages on 1st October, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
