Vluba, flows off the tongue smoothly doesn't it? Don't know much about the band, other than, that they are a psychedelic noise outfit from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fortunately for us those bastions of the noise underground Tanzprocesz have given us the opportunity of sampling their heady delights. Two long trks are available for dwld with a CDr option that comes in a handsome pyramid package, sporting an extra 10+ mins of audio.
The music is gorgeously murky, starting off like early Tangerine Dream with building electronic washes, then working towards more ‘acid casualty’ territory, with muffled drums and astral projected moans. Liking it’s DIY / live feel, those sliding whistles, that jumble of broken drums, not to mention the unbalanced electronics that spew up around them unpredictably - a real rough diamond sound with an art brute aesthetic that slowly hooks you up to the unholy rumblings of another dimension.
