"333" Reviewed at Animal PSI
Only half-evil, ‘333’ is only half-Noise, the rest a circuit-bent circus of manic rhythms and flamboyant glitch beats. The 60 minute looong-player by Arvo Zylo pays equal time to hi-fidelity Japanoise, hardcore breakbeats, and deep European surrealist absurdity akin to the solo work of Larsen’s Fabrizio Palumbo. While the half-hour intro track feels necessarily fragmented and piecemeal, the second and third tracks (“Deadbeat Deluxe” and “Plasthma”) both integrate nicely these elements into punchy anti-disco. Technicolor and crunchy, the duration hangs together nicely, but with the methamphetamine compulsion of the Industrial pleasure principle. Not to be ingested casually. A self-released, pro-pressed CD available for $9 HERE.
