Quilt – We Have Layers of Skin

It’s been a while since I heard a great noise record and, although We Have Layers of Skin isn’t a pure noise-fest, it’s a listening experience as abrasive as it is warm and welcoming. The harsher aspects of the disc – like the core of the buzzing, grinding opening track, “Everything Stops” – float beautifully among dreamier moments of droning waves of synth, often in harmony, as in the magnificent “Asexual Worm.” All in all, Seth Graham has made a truly singular record, seamlessly combining twirling ambience with screeching machinery, and the results are stunning. Out now on CD (in a limited edition of 50), with a tape release down the line on Hobo Cult.
