Artist: Olekranon
Title: Helminth
Format: 3" Mini CD
Label: Inam Records (@)
Rated: *****
Olekranon is the work of one Ryan Huber, who also seems to be the person behind Inam Records. There was little documentation with this disc and nothing by way of liner notes; the press packet described this as 'drone with beats,' and there is, indeed, noisy drone and there are beats, but this is not peaceful drone, nor is it the drum and noise that you would expect from Ant-Zen or Hands. This is a bit more disjointed and fluid. Olekranon also makes good use of ambiance throughout to keep it from getting too predictable. Overall this is a pretty good blend of noisy atmosphere and beats. This album is limited to 45 hand numbered copies and weighs in at around 19 minutes.
