(Le Souffleur)

The saga of the strange vinyl oddities from Netherlands’ Dijkstra (see also ASRA and Dadaphon reviews for reference) keeps going on. This time, we face a familiarly creepy atmosphere on the first side of the LP: a dissonant-organ chordal ostinato packages a series of electronic noises and buzzes mixed with feedback variations and earth loop noise modifications; it’s like making a trip into the circuits of a mad scientist’s brain, without any clue about how to exit but enjoying the crazy eruptions and intense colours of this disintegrated head’s innards. The surprise comes when I get up to flip the album, realizing there is no side B… Short and strange – I like this guy.
