DJ Cider Sigh & The Pisces
"Initial Lust (Drain Me,
Genre: experimental, electronic
To quote the press info: "Comprised of slowed down, synthesized
vocals that were saying what the acronyms meant but now just sound
like darkwave spookiness, as the letters of the acronyms are sung
ethereally, accompanied by beats created using FLStudio"
Interesting. So these ten songs, each one with an acronym title
(except for two untitled ones), are experimental electronic tracks
based around slowed-down elongations of those very acronyms.
Predictably this record has an air of mystery around it (good luck
figuring out the acronyms, if they're even real...), and that's
intensified by the mysteriousness of the music. Bizarre
slowed-down voices aside, the beats are plodding and slow, and the
whole thing carries a dark ambience to it. This means it can become
pretty slow and uninteresting at times, and will likely only be truly
loved by intense fans of experimental ambient music. This is a
somewhat curious artifact, but not one I can see many people becoming
particularly smitten by.
