Dark Red

America Canada 'Dark Red' is the second fulllength album from Shlohmo aka 25 yearold Los Angeles native Henry Laufer The record is an uncanny marriage of his everevolving richly textured sound with shades of '90s IDM RampB cassettetape Jungle and in an unexpected turn sludge metal It sounds like if Electric Wizard tried to make an RampB record he says or Boards of Canada meets Burzum by the River Styx Shlohmo's music thus far exists in the poles between the subtly textured tracks ofnbspBad Vibesnbspand the booming sinister synths and hihats of his production work and remixes such as his split EP with Jeremih Banks' 'Brain' remixes for Drake and The Weeknd 'Dark Red' utilizes Shlohmo's existing palate but also mines the noises and imperfections inherent in analog production and naturally damaged sounds Sidestepping current trends that lean towards pristine computergenerated productionnbspDark Rednbspexplores natural distortion fuzz and noise as compositional tools intentionally distressing sounds to echo the feeling of the icy menace and emotional charge found on early black metal tapes The result is a deeply personal listen Shlohmo's boldest statement yet This isn't an album which fades into the shadows The eerie squalling synths of 'Ten Days of Falling' usher in a world of phosphorescent disintegration and decay from the looming claustrophobia of new single 'Buried' to the minimalist pindrop orchestration of 'Remains' and the carnal hum of 'Ditch' there is palpable anxiety and discord 'Relentless' and 'Slow Descent' explore an internal sense of pain and sorrow that adds a stark emotional charge to the record
