Cathode Ray Tube :: Tribal Malfunctions EP (Component)

Slow moving bass is torn apart and shredded into an amorphous analog fabric.

Tribal Malfunctions by the multitalented artist Cathode Ray Tube is a half-dozen super elevated mechanical slab made from downtempo industrial, ambient, electro, and tribal ingredients. Synths shifted far into elongated and intertwined layers, CRT dips into abstract worlds. Slow moving bass is torn apart and shredded into an amorphous analog fabric. Scorched noise akin to Fennesz (courtesy of “Aura”) makes this trip slightly less turbulent, however, the balance of downtrodden versus crackling experimental treatments is utterly contagious and one that requires repeated listening. Closing up with definitive and slightly skewed remixes by Tonikom and label operator Raab Codec, Tribal Malfunctions is an apt title that ventures and veers into far-reaching sonic terrain.

Tribal Malfunctions is available on Component.
