More Violence and Geography LP
This is the vinyl debut of a long-time cassette-making outfit that specialize in dense, throbbing electronic ooze littered with found voices, tape and record manipulation, loops, samples and all the usual audio debris you would expect. In other words, it's not exactly a new idea but if you tend to go for this sort of thing (as I do) when it's done well, then you ought to give this disc a try. Part of the album's strength is due to the relatively short length of the tracks, which tend to run no longer than the average pop tune. I also enjoyed the way IOS temper the rather morbid subject matter with a bit of humor. (Complacency Productions,-John Booth
