Hailing from outer space via Reykjavik, Volruptus maps out intergalactic forms of communication on ‘Alien Transmissions’, the latest release from Bjarki and Johnny Chrome Silver’s inimitable bbbbbb records.
Title track is a disorienting dose of acid powered electropunkfunk whilst ‘Jargon’ uses complex polyrhythms to propel a grinding techno stomper. ‘Gett Vffreakye’ uses percussive breaks and mechanised vocal chops to depict aliens having a live jam in outer space, whilst closing track ‘Tesseract’ is an angular drum workout featuring animated bass and dissonant pad calls.
Like each bbbbbb release before it, Volruptus presents an intoxicating EP that pairs impeccable sound design with an unruly approach to genre, form and style.
