Alessandro Cortini, best known for his work recording with American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, debuts on Avian as Skarn with a handful of eerie, beautifully reduced sonic experiments.
As Brian Kolada notes in his review of Revolver, published on Resident Advisor in 2014, “the title track is ten minutes long, and worth the extra length.” Twitching and warping over the period, the recording demands to be played loud - belying it’s true, extraordinary intensity at anything less than high volume. Antipaste & Sandy draw from the same palette as Revolver, and whilst shorter in length, are hardly lacking in the same brooding intensity.
