Empfehlung! Die neue von DIMINISHED MEN
Empfehlung für alle NONPOP-Leser: Das neue Album von DIMINISHED MEN... Hier die Presseinfo plus Konzerttermine!
By distorting hard boiled film music through a cracked, overcast lens, Diminished Men refocus their influences into something entirely unique.
Capnomancy, their second release on the Abduction label (run by Alan Bishop of the legendary Sun City Girls and the Sublime Frequencies label), is a collection of stark, exotic instrumentals full of high tension energy and infected terror. Cloaked in a supernatural fog and man made electrical storms, chiaroscuro landscapes read like a sci-fi postcard with a Giallo ransom note attached.
The bands jagged, hard-charging approach evokes images of slit jugulars and accelerated heart rates, all the while swathing you in a blissful claustrophobia, reflecting elements of Morricone's dissonant horror scores, gritty noir cues, and the blood shot nerves of a kratom hazed Link Wray. Distant searing guitars and pummeling drums seep with slow pan derangement, panicked suspense and clouded 50's Americana delusion. The smoke clears and reveals a mirage of melancholy Wenders-esque backdrops and AM radio nightmares, but quickly returns to some other world that it came from.
The final album to be released from his now defunct Aleph Studio, producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Wolves in the Throne Room, etc.) contributes greatly with his visceral, heavy production, making this album their darkest offering yet.
Another bizarre series of degenerate no-hit wonders from the phantom guitars of Steve Schmitt, multi-instrumentalist Simon Henneman, and drummer Dave Abramson, who also a member of Master Musicians of Bukkake and has collaborated with Secret Chiefs 3, Eyvind Kang, Kayo Dot, Grails, etc. Capnomancy features guest appearances from members of Master Musicians of Bukkake as well as other Northwest delinquents, saxophonist Skerik and vocalist Sara Johanne.
