Joachim Nordwall - The Ideal Black (LP)
Oblique, intense and spirit-gnawing electro-acoustic exercises from The Skull Defekts founde & Ideal Recordings head honcho Joachim Nordwall, presenting a brilliantly stark album of direct and gnarly Machine energy.
Working with a bunch of tone generators fed thru a massive wall of amps at Elementstudion in Gothenburg, Nordwall isolates and fearlessly homes in on the recording space's resonant frequencies until you can physically feel the room grinding, whining and shuddering in the kind of spasms that arch the spine and set your back teeth on edge.
In the rarest way, thanks to Joachim's direct approach, the mixing of Linus Andersson, and Heba Kadry's master at Timeless Mastering, Bushwick, The Ideal Black is about as close as you'll hear to a 1-to-1 representation of pure, crushing tonal terror.
