Microphyst - Hugging Dead Things


A beautifully diverse full length from the UK's Microphyst. At times brutal and hard, while at other times melodic and inspiring. While i was listening to this, I often forgot I was hearing an artists album style effort. I thought I was enjoying a mix or having a good run through my soundcloud stream. "Hugging Dead Things" begins with a haunting, distorted and glitchy piano piece. This is immediately followed by a very well crafted breakcore offering laced with top notch edits, professional arrangement, and artful sample selection. The next track, "Energy Drink Enema" is a goofy romp through bouncy leads, noise interludes, and dubstep/breakcore cross-breeds. "Energy Drink Enema" is a great representation of what to expect from the rest of the album. Between the 4 minute or so long 'single'-esque tracks, the album is laced with 1 to 1 1/2 minute experimental, sometimes comedic noodlings. A must listen. For Free download from Microphyst's own bandcamp page.
