Aboombong - Asynchronic

I don't often (ever, would be more accurate) write posts related to contemporary music, I feel a bit old and don't really spend the time or the money trying to keep abreast of what's happening in today's patchwork of cool underground scenes. I've been quite enjoying some of the dubstep (or whatever you like to call it) stuff that's been drifting through my ears, particularly the Purple Wow Sound mix by Bristol producer, Joker. But we won't talk about that.

Much more out there and freeform than any of that stuff is this great album of clatter, hum and fuzz from the very mysterious Aboombong. The album is an intriguing blend of lo-fi drones, tape manipulation, mangled afro percussion and twitchy free-jazz drumming. And I'm liking it a lot.

Check it out.

Hi anonymous,
Nobody is ever going to enjoy every bit of music that's posted on this or any other website. The Aboombong album may not be a groundbreaking piece of musical genius, but it is interesting and has been made with thought and feeling. The artists have very kindly allowed people all over the world to hear their music for free and I have enjoyed listening to it over the past couple of weeks...brings to mind lots of music I've heard previously (23 Skidoo, Savage Republic) but that's no bad thing.
Maybe you'll enjoy the next post more.
