recent review of 'Flanked By Women and Pumpkns'
Review From Traumbaum: "Brooklyn’s PAS need little introduction,
particularly if you make an initial judgement based on the album’s title.
Expect the strange and be rewarded. PAS thrive, if not solely exist on the experimental
and convention is abandoned when it comes to track structures and themes. But, it
would be irresponsible to suggest that such avant-garde output isn't listenable.
From the off, the odd loops, sound effects and noises are stimulating, deliberately
designed to trigger a range of sensations both emotionally and physically. Some
of the noises can be industrial or organic and as an art house installation, it’s
incredibly effective. Beneath it all though, is an anarchic sense of mischievousness
– 70’s and 80’s new experimentalism is written large throughout
and the disturbing threads of new age alternative electronic sounds of Cabaret Voltaire,
Suicide and Nitzer Ebb may not be prevalent, but they are here in spirit. ‘Inner
Ear Echo Imbalance’ sounds like a cunning combination of ACR and The Prodigy
spun backwards, but it is astoundingly efficient in stimulating the symptoms of
the track title. The rousing cinematic closure of “Incredible Day For Natives”,
sets itself apart from the sound track so far, but it is built on exactly the same
formula and techniques of the preceding numbers. Long live experimentation and the
destruction of all recognised musical structures ! and along with PAS lets celebrate
the bending of all barriers. "
Frequency Fridays, June 7th in Columbus, Ohio.
