Artist: This Is What I Hear When You Talk
Title: Love Died With You
Format: 3" MiniCD
Label: Inner Demons Records
Rated: *****
This Is What I Hear When You Talk is the harsh noise wall project of Dan Fox, the man behind the Inner Demons label. He has been pretty busy lately with this, and sent several of his recent releases in this batch to review. Let’s see what this one is like, starting with disc 1. If you are looking for his wall of noise material, this isn't it. This is heavy, subterranean drone. It is constantly evolving, and shifting, but remains dark and heavy. When you consider the title of the album, you get a sense of what sorrow sounds like. Really nice listening. Disc 2 consists of one long sine wave of tone that pulses ever so slightly and has little bits of sound buried so far underneath it that you begin to wonder if they really are there. One thing I will say for this is that when it is over, your ears are incredibly aware that it is gone. If disc 1 was the depression that comes after loss, then this one seems to evoke the numbness that comes after you have run out of tears. For me, this was a mixed bag. Disc 1 was great, but disc 2 was too static for my tastes. It does make for an interesting backing track though. When you listen to this, let your mind wander and bring in all of the other noises around you (in the spirit of Cage's 4:33). This set weighs in at 42 minutes and is limited to 42 copies.
