Another brilliant collaboration between the Scandinavian sound artists
BJ Nilsen (from Sweden) and Stilluppsteypa (from Iceland), who had blown
us away on their previous duets Vikinga Brennivin and Drykkjuvisur
Ohljodanna and Milan Sandbleistift, the man behind the Licht-Ung label
Milan contribution is a teethgrinding piece of dirty drone wandering from lonely 8-bit electronic tones like a random piece of gear yanked from one of the Wolf Eyes' suitcases and allowed to growl in futility amidst a cloud of hiss and crackle pushed towards a radioactive self-immolation.
And even better is the glacial, grim drones from BJ Nilsen and Stilluppsteypa.
They've long mastered a twisted, rumbling ambience that's dark and dense, mysterious and haunting, deep and rich, their two sprawling tracks on this split LP are marvelous additions to their catalogues of drones that drift across the Arctic Sea on a massive rusted ship between Sweden and Iceland.
