Artist: Rasalasad, Featuring Von Magnet and Wildshores (@)
Title: Magnethism
Format: 3" Mini CD
Label: Thisco (@)
Rated: *****
This is the second of two 3” discs that they had sent. I had heard of Von Magnet, but the other two were new to me. This is one 17 minute composition that combines spoken word with an interesting music track. A meandering drum beat that functions as just another sound, drones that stretch on forever, Male and female voices that you can hardly make out, even with headphones. The woman says “this” in a kind of cadence, while the man’s rich bass voice blends into the music. Eventually, the woman takes over, but it is still difficult to make out – something about transformation, values, the soul, and technology. It gets repeated over and over, but this is like listening to an overheard conversation – you can make out bits and pieces, but you can’t help feeling like the words were never meant for you. Overall, the track is pleasant and interesting, with a lot going on in it. Definitely worth checking out. This album weighs in at around 17 minutes.
