Russian occultists Old Komm collaborate with southern Californian dons of austere electronics German Army, bringing to life the made up soundtrack to a film that never was. Disquiet tells the story of a child born to a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, war torn and fractured by greed. The Brvtalist immediately gravitated toward this great concept and the soundtrack delivers 14 tracks of obscure, retro-future dystopian magic.
We get much of the sound we have come to love from German Army, including the standout psychedelia on "Akra" and the industrial nihilism of "No Roles." Old Komm provides even more cinematic soundscapes on the solemn "Gorky's Theme" and plunges us into the depths with "Sea Reaks". The LP is a masterwork of a 1976 lost gem and not only have we had this on repeat since its mysterious delivery, but now we wish the movie was made. From the producers:
''A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men. No one remembers the days before the bleakness. It would be impossible to recall the old world, if it wasn’t for the reminders. Ruins... despair... echoes of madness...and in this maelstrom of decay, I was born.''
Disquiet is available on vinyl and digital formats and we urge our readers to experience its power. For more information please visit Discrepant.
