New Emamouse: “Puppy”

The ever woozy-making Emamouse has a new album titled Eye Cavity out on March 29 via Primordial Void, and “Puppy” serves as the first preview of that full-length offering. It starts jaunty but with an unnerving side, the synth melody dashing about while something sinister burbles up beneath. But it never really consumes the main part…at least not until midway through. That’s when distorted electronics rip in and turn this from slightly off cartoon hop-scotch to something approaching harsher territory (without plunging too far into “fit for a Merzbow podcast” territory). Listen above.
