Artist: Chandrama Sarkar (@)
Title: Guilty Nebula Compound
Format: 3" MiniCD
Label: Inner Demons Records
Rated: *****
I couldn’t find anything on this artist, but they have released a handful of cassettes and collaborations. This is the first I have heard of this artist, and without any background, we can get right on to the music. Chandrama Sarkar comes out swinging, with a noisy track that is filtered through massive amounts of reverb. Noise blasts alternate with cartoonish voices, as if it was a 33.3 album run on 78. You really can’t understand a word of it, but the tone gives the whole thing a whimsical quality that really makes it work. You come away from the whole thing smiling. The backing sounds grind and pulse continually throughout the track, giving it a sense of continuity, but also keeping it interesting as new elements are added to the mix. Overall, this is pretty solid and the voices keep it lighthearted, which is often lacking in the noise scene. This disc weighs in at around 16 minutes.
