In the expanses of the venerable compact disc format, our Swedish tape and electronics statesman piles in the lumber for a full scale fabrication of distorted scenes from daily life, fractured and warped to reflect the wandering imagination. Frusen Musik employs a rougher dialect similar to his Altar of Flies moniker, although it’s often used on the scenic grounds of works from his recently lauded Frånvarande and Nattmusik LPs. Eight stunningly impactful works of cavelike architecture for an inspired rattling of the cage, a curious peeling of the wallpaper. Drips, wobbles, creaks, and cracks are turned to gold while nearby liquid encroaches a vulnerable circuit, disembodied voices spiriting in through the vents. Pry this one open and find flashes of entropy, unplaceable dread, meditative stares, and an acceptable dosage of melancholy.
Comes housed in the immaculate packaging we’ve come to expect from the Careful Catalog label; die cut letterpress sleeve with three insert cards.
