Hoor-Paar-Kraat - In Eros Veritas In Eros Veritas
Pop Used - LP GOAT 013 Goat Eater Arts
Beautiful, Limited 2007 Milk-Colored Gatefold Vinyl. 300 Copies-100 On Colored Vinyl. "It Gets Harder And Harder To Describe The Music Of Hoor-Paar-Kraat. A Subtle Blend Of Abstract Noise, Composed Sound, And Field Recordings, Deftly Assembled Into The Musical Equivalent Of Little Dioramas, Little Soundworlds, Where The Normal Rules Don't Apply, Where The Sound Of Lapping Water Can Be A Rhythm, Where Piercing Feedback Can Be As Lovely As A Little Lullaby, Where The Creaking Of Rusted Machinery Can Become Soft And Warm And Inviting, And Beautiful Melodies Can Become Poisoned And Ominous. The Record Begins With Backwards Guitar, Bits Of Abstract Clatter, Streaks Of Feedback, The Muted Metallic Thump Of What Sounds Like Bicycle Spokes, Or Pachinko Machines, All Over A Backdrop Of What Sounds Like Reverbed Harmonica. The Sound Makes Us Think Of Some Super Lo-Fi Junkyard Bicycle Gamelan, Which Is Eventually Overtaken By Circusy Keyboard Melodies And Weird Electronic Squiggles, Which Quickly Gives Way To Huge Grinding Chunks Of Distorted Low End, Roiling Over Creaking Metal, Everything Smeared Into Layers Of Kinetic Dissonance, Tangled Up Into Frantic Fragmented Melodies. Later The Record Unfurls Into Spacious Field Recordings, Voices, Lapping Water, More Creaks And Groans, All The While A Distant Whir Paints The Background A Swirled Grey, Various Sounds Wrapped In Reverb And Allowed To Float Ghostlike. Occasionally The Sounds Coalesce Into Something Almost Rocking, At Which Point We're Definitely Reminded Of The Washed Out Murk Of The Dead C, With Plenty Of Lo-Fi Muted Clatter And Deep Resonant Rumbles, And Still The Strange Field Recordings Whisper In The Background. The Record Finishes Of Fiercely, But Still Abstractly, With Some Seriously SUNNO)))-Roof! Style Ur-Drone, Thick And Low And Heavy, But Somehow Impossibly Glimmery And Radiant, Laid Thick Over The Sound Of Lapping Water And Huge Distorted Chunks Of Grinding Bass Rumble. So Good." - Aquarius Records... more details
