No-one else makes music like this: devilishly complex but warm and intuitive, stirring together a dizzying assembly of outernational and outerspace influences while retaining the subby funk-and-hot-breath pressure of Shackleton's soundboy, club roots. The result is an evolutionary, truly alchemical music - great shifting tides of dub, minimalist composition, and choral song ("Five Demiurgic Options"); ritual spells to ward off the darkness ("Before the Dam Broke," "The Prophet Sequence"); radiophonia and zoned-out guitar improv ("Seven Virgins"); even the febrile, freeform psychedelia of '80s noise rock ("Sferic Ghost Transmits / Fear the Crown").

In the time since he collaborated with Shackleton on 2012's Music For The Quiet Hour, Vengeance Tenfold's vocal and lyrical range has rolled out across this new terrain. Throughout these transmissions he's hoarse preacher, sage scholar, and ravaged bluesman; blind man marching off to war; and exhausted time-traveler warning of impending socio-ecological catastrophe. Dialogic accounts of our conflicted times, then, expanding beyond the treacly unease of the duo's early collaborative work into something subtler and more emotionally shattering - its shades of brightness more dazzling, and its darkness even murkier.
