Straight from the depths of the burgeoning Austin, Texas weirdo scene, JT Whitfield delivers a six track mini-lp for L.I.E.S. after an impressive run of releases for Chondritic Sound.
Whitfield follows suit where he left off on his cut from last years Eminent Domain comp. with absolutely punishing slow beatdriven industrial electronics. This is for true fans of metal on metal music as these tracks desperately plod and grind, ripping apart everything in sight. The appropriate soundtrack to endtimes.
Featuring cover photo by the cult NYC street photographer Richard Sandler, the first in a series.
Sounds like classic sewer-grade industrial from the 70s/80s: 'Golden Oldies' reminds me of the deranged squeal of SPK. It's the best album from the L.I.E.S. boss to date which, after a set of confidently experimental releases over the last 4 years, shows real development and progress. The addition of scattered vocals are a real strength. Simon Gould
