Kontra’s “Chasing Aliens” boasts acidic riffs, leading the way in the neo-acid vibe that seems to be emerging lately.
Things darken up with sonar synths and a shuffling rhythm section before we head on over to Ben Sims‘ interpretation that has traded in the menacing electronics for Detroit sensibilities and a militant, stomping groove.
“Dog Disaster” brings the dissonance with obscure chords and off-kilter percussion, while commanding effects push the envelope even further. Closing up with the aptly titled “Arkahm” we are sucked back in to a black hole, with effects from the netherworld completing the vortex.
