VOIGHT KAMPFF "The Din of Dying Youth" LP

$7.50 $15.00

Coming off the heels off a mounting barrage of thick post-punk releases in previous years, Voight-Kampff pushes out another assault of aggressive and atmospheric post-punk with their new LP ǃˆ_—__The Din of Dying Youthǃˆ_—__. Immediately dropping into the fray like a paratrooper on the first track, the albumǃˆ_—_•s rhythmic chiming and bolting drums push their way through the melodic chorus-drenched guitar like a jackhammer pushing through a stream of water, cooling it down from overheating, in a sky-scraping industrial park factory where no sunlight reaches. The vocals reach over the tracks like the foreman of the factory speaking through the PA system to his human-replaced assembly line machines while simultaneously gripping the self-destruct button to detonate the entire site. Through the screeches and tears, faint optimistic veils drift in and out, spiraling around the tracks like a miasma. Clocking in at just over 20 minutes, "The Din of Dying Youth" delivers a solid line without fluff or filling, striking both sides of the alternative melancholy buzz, from Creation Records to the steel grinding steel noise of Touch & Go. As the tracks go on feel the momentum as youǃˆ_—_•re shot and traveling miles per minute through overhead cable lines from the muddy waters of the Mississippi River into the cold Northeastern waters of the Quabbin Reservoir. ǃˆ_—_® Josh Jenkins A perfect blend of sonic sounds and industrial era programming, resulting in nothing less than dark-wave purity. A referral for steady listeners of Joy Division, Merchandise, and Iceage.
