Silent Partner – Collection 1 [CS]

5.00

Label: Korea Undok Group

Year: 2017

Format: Cassette

Collection 1 is somewhat of a loose ends mixtape of ongoing, past, or aborted Korea Undok Group projects. Silent Partner is the wild card. Despite the fact that the tracks here are from four different incarnations—one of them being a real curveball—they've been culled and arranged into a cohesive compilation that has a late night video store vibe. The bookends resemble the Silent Partner appearances on Black Spring, where they sidled up as nebulous, lurking interludes.. The big anomaly is "Moma", which features smeared, boomy vocals (that I think I recognize those from Angel's Egg), over lively, charred electro fit for a chase scene in—I’m sure there’s a specific “wave” term for this, but I get a pretty distinct doped-up bedroom Wax Trax! flavor. "Knoll Office" and “Glatter Tanzboden” would have fit right in on Studio B, but that would have pushed it over he 30 minute mark. The Group has a firm grasp on the virtue of brevity; leave 'em wanting more, jam econo—all that stuff. And it's true: even with a batch of five tapes and a zine, I'm waiting for that next update to roll around. Consider Collection 1 the sorbet to cap off your gluttonous feast.
