(New Album Review) Sindre Bjerga- Fugue States

Sindre Bjerga, an experimental sound artist and musician from Norway and the curator behind Gold Soundz Records’s catalog for about twenty years strong, searches for the lost ghosts on magnetic tape through garishly beautiful collages. On August’s Fugue States, off Gateshead, England’s Invisible City Records, Bjerga takes us for a trip through a pair of blackened landscapes of eviscerated pop songs, bludgeoning noise, and uncomfortable near-silence. Recorded live and likely largely improvisatory, Fugue States is a dusky gem cobbled together within a seeming abyss…look into this one if you are a fan of the genuinely psychedelic crashing-around-in-the-dark-with-deliberation of the likes of Smegma and AMM.
