Soviet Subliminal Seduction - "The Seven in Six Six Six"
(Helicopter Records HR34)
From Aural Innovations #35 (January 2007)
This is a solo side (main) project of Mikko from the Danish band Double Space. This is some pretty strange and cool electronic music but with a lot of guitar as well. Think 70s inspired kraut psych rock music with multi layer guitars. The music has a very special intensity to it, somewhat lo-fi but hard to describe. Fans of the Finnish band, Circle, will likely really get into this stuff. Some of the industrial noise bands from the 80's also filter into the pictures here as well. Most of the tracks develop as intense grooves with repetitive lines of music that are repeated over and over and then different stuff happens here and there to keep it interesting. While this CD won't have much mainstream interest, I think it is very cool stuff. Keep it up, Mikko!
