New (to me, at least) project from Cured Pink/Kitchen Floor dignitary, Glen Schenau, crossing hemispheres for this first-time appearance on Paris-based imprint, Bruit Direct Disques. It fits the stable's long-running interests in outer-edge post-punk/DIY sounds well, no great surprise, really, given Schenau's previous. In fact, The Last Temptation of Thrill is a proper burner, a splattered mix of mutant pop-industrial murmurmings, avant dub gesticulations and atonal klang 'n' bang soldered together with an oddly compelling sloppiness that mostly suggests the Austra-Euro underground alliance is a real one. Think Witness K (also former Cured Pink members), a more disjointed Exek, second album and thoroughly debased Liars, Severed Heads before the songs (not a diss) and so and so forth. The B side, in particular, gets particularly messy, that very DIY spirit of letting all the shit hit the fan and revelling in what happens. Lovely stuff. The campaign for real incoherence continues apace.
Also in from Bruit Direct Disques - the debut record from Terrine, a DIY assault of blasted electronics and fractured rhythms, caught somewhere between Kevin Blechdom, Matmos and Inga Copeland.
