GRKZGL – “Antitulé”

After Monday’s debacle, you’d think I might never review a GRKZGL release again. Whatever. “Antitulé” was on the pile, and unlike the hot mess Brise-Cul let slip through the gate, this one is pretty damn good. In fact, it’s a very good example of why I first got excited about GRKZGL’s work in the first place– nice detail, great sense of dynamic, and a general unwillingness to be purposeful or evocative of some greater message.

Similar to his more recent work on the Neus-318 release “Drain,” this 3″ cdr finds GRKZGL working dexterously among multiple layers of low-end signals, with fine results. Headphone listeners will appreciate many details all but the best speakers may miss, such as the minute additions of high end sibillance occasionally coloring a more noticeable block of sound, or the fluttering subsonics exiting just before truly coming into aural focus.

Then again, my speakers sounded pretty good too, and you’d be a fool to not experience this one rumbling your insides from the next room.

Of course, long-time readers will be advised of my predilection for the 3″ format. GRKZGL puts it to excellent use here, playing to the format’s strength with a single track tightly focused on material worth thoroughly exploring for an extended period of time.

“Antitulé” may not be easily available at this time, please contact GRKZGL directly to inquire.
