Islet - Triangulation Station

The propulsive madmen/woman of Cardiff jagged frenzy and instrument-swapping Kraut-psych-absurdity are back with a second album, Released By The Movement, in the autumn, from which comes a single out 10th June that, obviously, sounds nothing like normal ideas of an single, though it might qualify as a distorted signal beamed in from some other dimension. It does sound like it's been recorded at the other end of a long corridor but otherwise there's a lot of repetitive mantras, a lot of arrythmic percussion and vintage synth drones, some weird vocal arrangements falling over each other and the sense that it might make slightly more sense watching the four of them on stage pushing each other on to greater brain-melting heights.
