For the seventh release on Avian, Brewer invites unpronounceable Swedish outfit SHXCXCHCXSH to make their extraordinary debut.
Immediate but at the same time fantastically textured, SHXCXCHCXSH’s music straddles the experimental and the highly functional. The record almost feels as though split into two separate exercises, with A sides RJRJRFFRJRJ & MDDDSSLLKRR offering harsh, metallic tones, and B sides ZZNNZNZNNZN & OOOVVVDDDDD touching on a more atmospheric, dub Techno aesthetic. The coalescence between moniker and art is palpable. To see the SHXCXCHCXSH name in writing, alongside equally brutish track titles, is to hear the music - crushed white hot and warping, born out of a kind of order, but totally unbound by it.
