Zika Boys – Climate [CS]

5.00

Label: Korea Undok Group

Year: 2017

Format: Cassette

Always nice to see some new masks in the foggy land of Korea Undok Group. Zika Boys already win some praise for the name alone (ahem, I’d like to submit this to evidence), but also manage to shake out a wonderful debut of palpitating resonances and loop-driven traversals of a gravely, low-visibility landscape that matches the greyscale artwork. Far-away industrial music that points to the factory flame that serves as the focal point for a downer meditation. Degraded rhythms claw at the windows, threatening to bring the whole storm in with them. Despite there being only two side-long tracks, Climate reports from a number of different locations without interrupting the hipnosis, cutting in subtle tool changes and shifts in proximity. I can’t really imagine myself getting any more comfortable than sinking into the low-passed lull that makes up the last section of the first side. Demo quality always reigns supreme when the content is comprised of melancholy, suffocated harmonies and opioid groves, so the end product is perfectly overcast and gritty for the sunken mood of this one. Good work, Boys.

Add To Cart
Zika Boys is a new collaborative industrial effort based in Winnipeg. The duo’s debut falls somewhere between shrill, high-frequency tape and tense, bass-driven industrial. Strange, humid sound. Ancient viruses.
