Elapse-O - Elapse-O
Cacophonous, intense music that bludgeons the listener into a state of ecstasy. Coming on like a hallucination inducing punch from their titular Sonny Liston, Elapse-O pass from the thrill of the initial hit into a disconcerted daze. That immediacy comes from the strident vocals, Songs About Fucking-esque drum machines and Fuck Off Riffs; the following disorientation from the Pita-like layers of textured noise and glorious attention to detail lavished on these songs. Call ‘em a noise band if you will- but where so many of that ilk wallow in an inhuman sludge, Elapse-O’s music glories in the intensities of experience. This is thrilling, vital music from the young UK underground.
