Bastard Noise – Skull Wave

qb_60903_bastardnoiseThis is a single track, 46 minutes recorded live in California. “Skull Wave” is another chapter in the more ambient side of Bastard Noise. Deep tonal drifts wash across the stereo field, and cryptic electronics scurry beneath the drone. It’s a subtle piece, but one that remains interesting and fluid throughout. I think it’s a much better representation of solid dark electronics than the also recently released “Live In Japan” CD. The material here is more complete, and shows much more depth. There is a nice brooding atmosphere that trails through the whole piece, that has a introspective emotional edge to it. Very nicely conceived, particularly for a live piece. – Scott
