Eomac – Hither, Pappy
The Trilogy Tapes
Will Bankhead's Trilogy Tapes label keeps up the full spectrum techno assault on this, the second of two releases to drop this week. Eomac delivers a mindboggling jungle-breakcore-noise hybrid on "Hither, Pappy", recalling elements of Atari Teenage Riot, Autechre and Scam records then mashing them through an post-industrial meat grinder. "Husk" quickly slams its foot on the brakes, easing us back into a blurred 125BPM groove, buzzing with electrostatic discharge. This one hits the veins usually mainlined by techno users Blawan, Analogue Cops, Midland etc. "Tunnel" on the flip gets very corrosive, very quickly! Before long harsh white noise shards and gurgling distorted acid are flatlined right against our eardrums. Brutal, punishing, tech; and just when you think this one's done with you, it spits you back out and punishes you some more - there is no escape!! "I Love You, I Miss You" finally lets us rest, or rather recover, after the unrelenting attack of blast beats. Spiralling off into a dreamy but malevolent cloud of ghostly vocals and plinky-plonky beats.
