New House Of Tapes: “Spark Spark”

Now here’s some lovely cacophony. Nagoya’s House Of Tapes has created a lot of busy and, at times, crushing works over the last few years, but “Spark Spark” belongs to a different category — this is a charged-up number, one featuring ominous beats and a lot of distorted vocals, like transmissions coming from some hell-park in another dimension. It isn’t quite pure chaos, but it can get pretty intense. But House Of Tapes knows how to wrangle in the noise just enough so it never turns grating, but rather intriguing in its bruteness. Listen above.
