Genre/Influences: Industrial, experimental, electro-noise.
Content: This new album is a double 12” vinyl featuring a total of 7 songs. The global style and influences are different from the former work and more into an exploration of industrial electro creation and pure experimentalism. A few passages reveal the technoid basis of Kerridge, but it has been reworked into a minimal and even noise-minded electro format.
The vintage aspect of this work has been reinforced by impressive sonic manipulations. Some of the tracks are not exactly what I would call the most accessible format of electronic music, but it simply reveals the eclecticism of the artist and his impressive skills as a producer. Even some robotic and fragmented vocal passages are into the pure experimental vein of the work.
+ + + : The great sonic treatments and atypical industrial-noise format merged with technoid elements are absolutely avant-garde minded.
– – – : Some cuts are not exactly what I would define as ‘accessible’ for a wider audience. Samuel Kerridge maybe abused a bit of the experimental/minimal approach.
Conclusion: Samuel Kerridge clearly appears to be a visionary artist who’s innovation and analogue sound creation is like the future sound of industrial noise.
Best songs: “FLA-5”, “FLA-1”, “FLA-6”.
