(The Locus Of Assemblage)

Baker’s high standards are once again confirmed in a 3-inch CD adding to the excellent level of this label’s series. Blauserk is defined by a slightly murkier sound quality than usual, considering the recent works by the Canadian artist. This is courtesy of the low-frequency superimposition which, layer upon layer, creates a suspended equilibrium coincidental to the piece’s dominating mood. With a little touch of distortion for good measure plus abundant pumping of subterranean rumbles, here is another protracted moment of introverted pacification with life’s nervous patches. Another fascinating chapter in Baker’s ever-consistent body of work.
