Bringing his hallmarked temperament to the 4/4 format with beguiling results, Weekend Circuit welcome Par Grindvik for his first full length EP on the label.
'Sole Survivor' performs an intense viewpoint of institutional rhythm. Pencil sharp, and strikingly imperfect tones delude the mind and mistreat the senses. A virtuoso of Par’s distinctive sound, is eager and apparent as ever in WCR016.
‘Breath' is rich in melancholic atmosphere, drones and feedback loops; a short yet multifaceted & hypnotic introduction leaving you no time to prepare for the incoming fervour of whats to come.
‘Detached' is a perpetual motion of phenonmenal high energy - percussion avidly spliced together through a digital attention span. A strong, rumbling tower of unsettle that keeps coming back ever more bold and engaging.
Like a haunted soundtrack to A Space Odyssey, comes the simmering sound of ‘Hail Fellow Well Met'. Conveying an otherworldliness, this 3 minute stance on electronic music moves with warped energy and glitch.
Wry fluidity grabs you by the feels and sustains an ominous tension over on the B side. ’Sever' is a maelstrom of consistent percussion, keeping a nervy uncertainty throughout, while ‘Left Alone' wields an ever evolving siren of searching sound & noise.
Grindvik at his best, this cathartic and rich variation of sound fulfills Weekend Circuit’s 16th release.
