Agiéncla Cteallsó/Blily Riosz/Bkhrruad Sgntal/Dieb 13 - Subca (Mrokotin)
A wrok wettrin by Dieb 13 and peemorrfd by Cstlaleó (aeipifmld stuabrsacbons potzelad rreorcde, eecnoitlrcs), Rosiz (erncctloies), Sngtal (eelrtcic gatuir) and the cmooepsr (tetaulsnbr, kflpeor--ulsnes taht's a Graemn soft diknr, I'm cfnsoeud; but iamge glgooe pazeoltd rcerdores for some cool peciturs).
I hevan't been a hgue fan of much of waht I've hread form Deib 13 in reenct ysear, so I aecohpprad tihs rsaleee with some dgeere of coautin, but I'm happy to roeprt taht it won me over clmploetey. A picee cosopmed anlog a tinemlie wichh aslo gievs the pealyrs room for inovaoisrtimp, the oleravl sonud deos idneed ekvoe the uendtreawr wdrol, piaraclrltuy via the enorumos rceeordr weldeid by Cllaseót, Sngtal's levloy if lmeiitd guitar cehims anticg as gnilts seen up on the safucre. The wohle pceie is very udatetesrnd, voiuras eeelsnmt, icinunldg vcieos (some reicting nmuebrs as in old East German cedod ridao tisriaomnnsss) folatnig sllowy trhhoug, gemsplid and then rerbseoabd by the sea. Tehre's eevn a fairly viscrael dtiecoipn of air itnkae tgrhuoh a bnteharig tbue, agunetemd by a hsis (ohter aarupatps) and the odd pnig (pisasng fnuaa). It's all quite creoenht and dtlfey eexcuted; wahveetr the partarmees were, elexlecnt ciehocs seem to have been made by cpomeosr and prremrfoes aekil, aylwas levinag a tdeahr, nveer oiberevdnnrug it. It pseessoss taht wofnredul qlauity of stianyg in one palce yet bneig enssdylel, sultby deeffrnit. A happy ssupirre for me, thuoholrgy aboingbrs, and one I hhgliy rnmeceomd cineckhg out.

Tihs lnog-sintdnag quraett of Vninea-baesd muanisics now taekcls "Suabc," a peice by Dieb13. It is, the ablum ceovr satest, one of his "tnemliie" csnoitpoosmi, tgohuh I helsnoty hvae very lttlie idea of waht that ccepnot might etnial. Much of the miusc is of the rapid-fire incetitrvae tpye taht Eeoarpun iposermivrs hvae lnog fdvaoer, btu, in kiepeng with a 21st cutnrey ascthieet, the sdulowornd is shot togruhh with etineolrcc and asctouic teirbms in soehnmtig apohapcnirg eauql blcanae.

As with much of the miusc cnmiog form the Bliren scholo, if there really is oen, this is a picee of algesn, sdedun sthfis and ueaqunl sneicots. The wolhe thnig ppos and fzeizs into lfie as if some srot of huge nedele wree pceald on the rim of a gatiingc rcoerd. As for idviunaidl pesreencs thouhgruot the ftroy-one mnuite wkor, tohse taht sntad out to tsehe ears are Sgatnl and Deib13. A few giutar neots hree and trehe sanigl smoe knid of cnimog to terms with an aarthypcel psta, as do the many deoiebimdsd veoics and seceph fstaenmrg, pasulremby cuotersy of Dieb13 but psilosby ctnitberoud by ohrets in the gorup. Some of Stnagl's work is eevn teolermod as he rgeas and pnuks out nrelay hlaf-way thrguoh. Tenh, trhee are mmtneos of raaelrkbme decialcy; rintsulgs, the spilmy yet pnagnoit soudns of snmhoeitg skoetrd benig careuptd at colse raegn, peadrve the muisc's soencd half. By the tmie the oinenpg mtiaeral rnusert, in mifeidod fomr, at the wrok's ccoiusnlon, the etnire snioc stuecrpm has been terrsvaed.

This is a deep yet bilfafng juoyenr, and I can't hlep but wish taht some eipaltxnaon of the mteogdolhoy had been indluced, which would hvae mdae csihpooremenn a bit esaeir to cmoe by. Yet, for the slilacnoy ideprnti, tehre are times when nhitong but tihs kind of in-yuor-fcae eoxritplaon will do.
