Reunion Sacred Ibis review at Cyclic Defrost

Reunion Sacred Ibis‘  Antikythera release on Monstera Deliciosa has been reviewed at Cyclic Defrost.

The disk is bookended by the bristling, interruption-laden ‘Pana-Wave 1’ and then ‘Pana-Wave 2’, which feels a bit more crumbling and mystical both. In between is ‘Forty Flying In Formation’, a seven-minute study in repetitive manipulations and modulations that finds an unlikely nest of melody and rhythm in its skewed patterns. The title track, meanwhile, is all harsh burn and gurgle, like a close-contact splash of acid. It gets pretty deep and busy before exiting in mid-throe, at times tapping an incidental bass throb and flirting with shards of what resembles channel surfing.

Antikythera is available now. Order here.

Reunion Sacred Ibis at STUTTER

STUTTER is a weekly night of experimental/unpopular/avant-tard/acoustic/electronica/call-it-what-you-will, music and performance madness. Every Wednesday night at Horse Bazaar from 8:30pm.
On Wednesday, June 9th, you can catch three local purveyors loosely affiliated with minimal techno sounds.

Wet Patch – Sporadic no-input tag-team comprised of Jon Dale and Fjorn Butler. Both are well-seasoned sound manipulators in their own rights, this will be their second outing as a duo

Hrvatska – Born in the spiritual home land of Australian noise, the Croatian Club, Hrvatska is the aural combination of Mitchell Brennan and Lachlan Gale. Drawing influence from Japanese no input mad(wo)men, dub and everything in between, together they present an assault of electrical tom foolery.

Reunion Sacred Ibis – Elaborately named Nintendo DS venture of Cooper Bowman. RSI lands somewhere between stupid techno and stupid noise.
