Genre/Influences: Experimental, industrial, minimal-electronics, IDM.

Background/Info: American project Surachai is back on track. Surachai Sutthisasanakul has released an impressive number of productions over the past 10 years and is now back again with this double vinyl album featuring 12 tracks.

Content: Surachai has used to bring us a much diversified canvas of sounds and noises. “Come, Deathless” holds onto this tradition and moves from pure experimentalism and improvisation towards more structured passages revealing elements of dark-electronics & industrial plus IDM. From cold and freaky parts to a total sonic chaos, this work also covers minimal compositions.

+ + + : I like the dark aspect of the work, which is supporting all of the tracks. This atmosphere definitely appears to be the common element between all cuts. I also enjoyed the more sophisticated approach of some tracks, featuring IDM elements. The analogue sound treatments remain part of this project’s magic.

– – – : The Surachai releases I’ve heard always feature their part of experimentalism and that’s not exactly the side of the project I prefer.

Conclusion: Surachai remains an intriguing project mixing different- although related music genres together. It’s a bit enigmatic, but always fascinating.

Best songs: “Deciphering Whispers From Wind”, “Splinters And Thvrst”, “Leaning Into Pain”, “Articulation Of A Dead Tongue”.

Rate: (7½).
