street silence - "Snotglock"

Raw and primal, as compelling as it is caustic, "Snotglock" embraces the classic krautrock drumbeat of genre pioneers such as Neu! and adorns it with a slab of distorted guitars. There is beauty to the dissonance in the same way that Sonic Youth could pull harmonies from waves of fuzz; similarly, this track is as lovely as it is foreboding and ominous. A highlight includes the sporadic clean melodies that poke through the distorted waves around 3:40, which provide a pleasant contrast to the relentless nature of the rest of the track; I wish we heard more of this before the track concludes.
