This Is What I Hear When You Talk is back with more harsh noise wall for your listening enjoyment, so let's see what he has in store for us this time. This album consists of two three inch discs. Disc one consists of one 22 minute track titled “[CLUSTERFU(K->GCPRO->OCT-1->INSANE->E616II_LOFI->OCT-1->(RUPTURE->ENO_RVB)->BLACK_RAT->DD600]+[NPG->DAME->HOLYWAR->OBSCURA]” (how’s that for a radio friendly title?). This is a wall of crackling, rumbling noise with a blast of foghorn-like drone kicking in every second for five seconds at a time. The result is oddly peaceful because of the rhythm of the piece. Disc two brings us a more traditional harsh noise wall with the 22 minute track “(VOLCA_BEATS->GC_PRO->FX57->DISTORTION_WAVE_SHAPER_FILTER->FX86->HOLY_WAR_->INSANE->DD600)+(HADRON COLLIDER->DAME->TM300->BEQ700->OBSCURA).” At first blush, this just sounds like a standard wall of staticy noise, but this track really requires a listen through headphones to catch all of the subtlety that TIWIHWYT is throwing down. Hidden under the static is a lot of shifting tones and a heartbeat-like sound that is woven throughout the track until it begins to fall apart halfway through in a case of arrhythmia. Overall, this was pleasant listening for those who like their noise to shift at a glacial pace.
