Smegcake!
3 stars Now this is maddening music. I think the runtime in total is just over 11 minutes for this EP... yet there are 99 (!) tracks. Each has a small, jazz/avant fueled spasm of riffing and drum beats, some that last barely a second, with others that run for up to twenty. The thing is though...it's not very continuous. Well, to be honest, every track is seperated by a second of silence, which makes calling this 'progressive' very hard. Within the short tracks however, there is no sense of structure or form, just a burst of quick, unfiltered music which disappears as quickly as it comes. Then, in the same way, this happens another 98 times. Unsettling, abrupt and only for those who appriechiate the extremes of music, Orthrelm's EP is definitely a very polarising first effort, as their latter works became so well known for amongst their math rock fan base.
Smegcake! | 3/5 |
