Sigulda/Sensible Nectar – Split C20

Side of the Sun Recordings

Here are two artists, one of which, unfortunately I am already familiar with that being: Sensible Nectar. This is a short cassette with both artists presenting 2 very mediocre noise tracks, Sensible Nectar’s side is a bit more ambient though.

With “Three in One” Sensible Nectar combines some harmonious ambient drones on top of subdued pedal noise. Well, subdued might not be the right word, it’s really just turned down a lot. Delayed and reverbed-out the first part of the track is ok, but also quite an effortless juxtaposition. For the second part the noise doesn’t really come to the forefront, but rather it is the only thing left and just kind of fucks around. Definitely nothing that really appeals to me here.

With Side B Sigulda presents “Loath Dance” which is a kind of an appropriate title. It starts out with this kind of pseudo rhythmic industrial/noise/power electronic thing going and stays more or less the same throughout the entirety of the track but the wank factor is multiplied exponentially as the track goes on.

Both of the tracks are lacking in the production department, with kind of an echoey, ghostly presence to both it’s kind of difficult to believe the sounds are even actually there. Bordering on the bad side of digital, my guess is they both have a mix of analog and digital pedals they’re playing with here and staging the gain too high on the digi gear.

Predictably not into this much at all. Unfocused, seems to be noise for noise’ sake. I’m sure this was fun times wanking around recording this but not nearly as fun to listen to.
