Kayaka is definitely guided by her own personal compass; I was not expecting to hear glassy, clean, budget GRM synth tones over the hand triggered 80s industrial drum and guitar gnashing that introduced “Operation Deep Freeze”. There’s an instillation quality to most of the tracks, given the way large chunks of varying fidelity and tone are separated into their own hard-panned corners. Take this for whatever it’s worth, but while listening, I was driven to watch, yet again, the clip of AF and Murphy’s Law being featured in Cremaster 3. Domestic field recording mutations, solo DAW-based instrumental Slugfuckers, hiccuping firecracker electronics, exploded sludge dub. Equal parts thuggish and cerebral sound design. I imagine the artist has made considerable strides since this tape, but for the uninitiated, this seems like a fine place to start.
