01. Against the World, Against Life
03. For Kay Parker
04. Harm (for Harm)
I first discovered Fordell Research Unit through Dead Sea Liner; with the “Real Men Drink Horse Milk” CDr. I was completely blown away by his intense noise, warm drones and glitchy electronics and I hunted out as much material by him as I could, as well as getting in contact with him to tell him how much I was enjoying it all. Then a demo was sent and this new Dead Pilot release was born. At only alittle over 25 minutes, Year Zero still manages to bring together lots of ideas and sounds; begining with the warm atmosphere of “Against the world, against life” which subtly grows over its 12 minute duration, feeling like the walls are caving in around you. Then there is the shortest track on the EP “Droowne” which is a glitchy electronic freak-out, sounding like thousands of dying flying insects. “For Kay Parker” flows gently in with a soothing wall of lush drone noise. And finally the final track entitled “Harm (for Harm)” is a layered organ drone piece which brings this excellent ep to a beautifully hypnotic ending. An amazingly crafted piece of work. (Dead Pilot)
It’s a 25 minute album of intense dark drones and feedback which build and build until your brain is a frazzled former shadow of itself. There’s a lot of this sort of thing around these days but this sounds like it’s done pretty well. Anyone into the Tim Hecker ish side of fuzzy warm droney feedback is gonna like this I think. Year Zero is limited to a paltry 75 copies!! (Norman Records)
FR L’album de Fordell Research Unit sur Basses Frequences ne m’avait pas spécialement marqué. Plus apaisés, ces quatre titres (deux courts, deux longs) me séduisent beaucoup plus (alors que les deux disques ne sont pas fondamentalement différents, allez comprendre…). Au passage, sur le site de Dead Pilot on peut actuellement lire ceci: ‘For a limited time only, use discount code CDR50 for 50% off all CDR releases in store!’ Si ça vous tente, vous savez quoi faire..
ENG More drones from Fordell Research Unit, very calm. These days, here’s what you can read on the Dead Pilot website: ‘For a limited time only, use discount code CDR50 for 50% off all CDR releases in store!’ So now you know what to do…
