New Cemetery: Excoriation

Producer Cemetery is keeping busy, as much as one constructing uneasy but at times peaceful electronic music can get. The project’s latest EP, Excoriation, comes via Spanish label angoisse, and highlights the lighter side of a project that can get dark (I mean, it’s called Cemetery). The producer gets downright spiritual on “Unknown Stains In Yr Memory,” a lithe song featuring woodwinds and bright keyboards, giving way to a vocal sample looped over and over again until it becomes a meditative mantra. Following number “Cosmo” plays with space, allowing silence between waves of electronics, disrupted only by some quivering additions. Still, more uncomfortable passages emerge, such as on the soft-to-loud “ADD” and the gurgling “Affordance.” Listen above, or get it here.
