charles curse Rain In Skull (LP, £25.95)label: Olde English Spelling Bee
"Australian CHARLES CURSE's music is one of the weirdest things I've come across all year. On Rain In Skull, fragments of disjointed folk melodies move across a plain of wheezing chords, tape hiss, children's voices, ambient washes, amp hum, electronic glitch and bits of buzz in general. The contrast between downcast guitar playing and the physical claustrophobia-inducing weight of sound is equally perplexing and intriguing. It's all presented in a decidedly lo-fi environment but the sound construction is anything but simple, as this is a complex sonic stew, unique in the true sense of the word."-Mats Gustafsson, The Broken Face. Limited pressing of 200 copies, with full-colour spray-mounted covers. A re-worked and remastered issue of an obscure CDR release from 2007.
