(New Album Review) Aires & Rui P. Andrade- Pânico-Ambiente [EP]
Pânico-Ambiente is the newest offering from the drone masters Aires and Rui P. Andrade, and was released on cassette in February through the Lisbon-based Casa Amarela collective. What can I say about these awesome guys that I did not already say in my write-up for their split with Earthly Beasts? Listeners should be warned though– this release stands apart from Aires and Andrade’s previous efforts in that it takes the plunge completely into harsh noise. Pânico-Ambiente is an absolutely bracing half-hour of punishment. A thrilling, and welcome, experiment from two highly original sound artists– some of the most daring brain-fuckery you can hear this side of the golden age of Japanoise.
