Malacarne

There's no form or movement in this music. It's improvisatory, ambient, repetitive, as if the point is validate the act of making the music and nothing else, not even listening to it. And stili I love it. Bass, drums, guitar and voice banging out songs that feel like modernist paintings, more shapes than tunes, dark and empty. It's a soundtrack in search of a David Lynch movie. The tracks are full of silences or blank spaces; they're like roads through abandoned cities or desolate countryside. It's arty, pretentious post rock. But it's also an antidote to the over stimulation of modern life, to a world full of television, movies, newspapers and advertisements. Music for a world without people. Excellent.
