Submechanical – Recoil [Jezgro]
Jezgro arrives at the end of 2023 with a new reference very much in line with the philosophy of this recording project, as Darko Kolar’s intention when he founded this label in the middle of the last decade was always to make noise an essential element. After seven years of activity, and a not very extensive number of releases, only 9, Jezgro continues to vindicate noise as a form of sonic expression.
The British project Submechanical returns four years later to Jezgro with Abrasion, a title that clearly defines the erosive style of the album. Comparing their previous work on this label to their current release, we observe that there is a greater propensity for rhythmic noise, as the author, besides giving most of the protagonism to the degraded textures, also provides dynamism from diverse rhythmic structures fully integrated in the sound environment.
Abrasion is a ten-track track very well taken to the extreme, each cut radiates and intoxicates the mind gratefully due to the dense atmosphere and the sense of devastation it generates. It should be added that there are eight original tracks and the last two tracks are two remixes by Shelley Parker and 3.14.
Release date: December 18th, 2023.
