Emerging from the darkest corner, the new cassette release from Los Angeles-based producer SARRK. 0th is a demented trip through the Southern California night in search of a viscous slayer whose whereabouts are unknown. Taking cues from slasher films, synth, wave and even electro, 0th is a bloodcurdling good time.
Side I begins with "Power of Source", the perfect appetizer of a tension building atmosphere that sets the stage of what's to come. "The Scoundrel" and "Oth" pick up the RPMs with a heart throbbing race through the city streets. Perhaps our favorite track of the record is the seductively slow burning, "Ride The Knife". We were instantly pulled into the smooth delivery and icy feel. Closing out side I is the more aggressive, "Manhunt" that pulverizes the listener until the very end.
"Silence" is another fantastic down shift to start Side II and that leads into another anthemic piece with "In The Street". After the haunting, vocoder laced moods of "From Behind", the tape ends with the chilling "At Large", a stark reminder that he is still out there. 0th delivers on all fronts and the physical copies look great as well. Out April 21st on Young Cubs x Night Rambler Records.
