Sculpture: Four Way Split #1

Sculpture: Four Way Split #1

Danish label Phinery is no stranger to otherworldly electronic music. Their newest release Four Way Split #1 features Sculpture, Karl Fousek, D Hansen, and GLIA. This release marks the first new music from Sculpture since their LP Membrane Pop on Software. "State Translation" and "Fashion Talk" are embedded with frayed, fractured vocal samples that comb over effervescent synth textures. Sculpture creates a sonic tapestry of transient percussive jitters that rattle to the deep reaches of the cortex. While there is an abundance of scattered bits of chewed up frequencies akin to previous Sculpture releases, there is a certain somber cloud of ambiance that permeates its way into this record, most notably on the track "En-Orb," an odyssey into a dream-like atmosphere. Sculpture's spastic rhythms are submerged beneath a thick gelatinous stew of synthesizers, sizzling in a cauldron amongst the vapors of a freak chemical reaction. 

Four Way Split #1 is out July 20 on Phinery.
