Kassette Kulture #29 - Ultra Bonbon - Tape Hiss Abyss



This new release from Ultra Bonbon is superbly dystopian…

The submerged scenes from Argento’s Inferno come to mind, as those eerie tints lap your ears... filthy bubbles escaping from a haunted music box reparation. Sediment swirls full of vaporous apparitions and sepia distortions. The sound of Manatee telekinesis, bred in detached gravities…. atmospheres a certain Mr. Stapleton would be proud of.

In contrast to the wet sounds of side one, the reverse play is more parched, elastic … Amp climaxes, forced down narrow corridors… peeling walls full of Karloff gazes. This lush Heathen Earth type cornet skulking in the darkness, like the ghosting of vocals smothered under porous bandages. The flanged edges, the drooling of salivas over stainless steel and tile, as clubbed footfalls or muffled heartbeats are caught in the chilling suck of hospital respirators…

This is beautiful stuff that oozes a psyched disquiet through both its art and music...
