EMULSION
DEATH OF THE AUTHOR EP (Emulsion)
~review by Mick Mercer

With John Bergin artwork I guess it doesn’t surprise anyone that they do the dark soundscape thing, and their cover of ‘Pornography’ is well Twin Peaks in attitude, and their ‘In Lust’ is like a disturbing, inverted Techno nightmare, ugly in a gutted 2 Unlimited manner, and would have been strangely invigorating had they done something more with it than simply being repetitive. ‘Undone’ is remote twinkling which is deliciously odd, and ‘Sonido Negro’ disorientating and empty, like having an ice cave sing to you. ‘Every Machine’ is simply more of the same, only mopier.
 
Would an album excite me? No, because I can’t see what this is for, exactly.
