Pure – Noonbugs

Having heard some of Pure’s previous solo works and the split 12″ with Christoph Fringeli (who runs Praxis) I expected this release to be one big noiseblast. That is why this cd came as a total surprise. The tracks seem to be built around loops of classical music, concrete sounds and skipping cd players.

Together these form a very suspenseful and subtle ambient soundtrack that reminds me of the works of Z. Karkowski, the more digital side of Zoviet France, or the more ambient works of Coil. Very dark and intense, a big step ahead in dark-ambient music!
