Drawings from the Outer Realm
& Peculiar Video Game Music Reviews
Ecstatically charged prongs rip my flesh to shreds, all pulling through the structured cords of my entrails assisting with my construction. The blood and rind of my limbs are forced in opposing routes tormented by heart-break. The severity of this sound artist is wholesome yet outlandishly cataclysmic. Falling from afar, my lifeless body will inevitably smash into the corrosive disco floor, leaking like such plutonium. This reclusive Costa Mesa based sound maker compresses the harshest of noises into what he calls a survey of brutality. No matter how much medication I consume, Phog Masheeen won’t wear off.
Dance Disaster Movement
Dance music should be innovative and lead our minds in a positive direction. I love the way Dance Disaster Movement blend lo-fi, live instrumentation with a brash punk attitude, all melting upon a sincere furnace of enthusiastic noise, entirely abrupt and chaotic. GOT THE PIECE OF MIND, I GOT THE PIECE OF MIND!! Comprising of duo Matt Howze and Kevin Litrow, the two Californian gentlemen send all mortals into a frenzy of schizophrenic dancing, pogoing, tangoing, clasping at the floor – whatever you want! SHOOT ME! SHOOT ME IN THE FUCKING HEAD!! Abrasive synthesizers stab from every angle, into every fleshy vent. Guitars excitedly plunge ensuing the scraping of my skin. A truck load of disordered drum beats pulverize my pores, their unique version of death disco cum glam punk bringing me to the brink of deterioration. YOU KNOW YOU GOT IT GOOD!! Appearing on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label back in the early 2000s the band featured alongside other classic underground bands of the period such as Die Monitr Batss, Young People, Paradise Island and Battles. Their overt harshness and lack of order always translates into positivity, which is something we lack from time to time. There is a always a need for them to grind my ass into the ground. I WANT YOUR SASS!!
