The US experimental-dystopia project The Hathaway Family Plot released the LP A Flat Thing yesterday.
An eleven track, roughly forty one minutes, album (available on bandcamp) which requires the listener to put away any preconceived thoughts of song construction prior to hitting play.
A stretch of disparate instrumentation crackles through the room – on occasion forming agitated clumps on others a flat-line of no-wave, yet always holding an attentive audience whilst inviting them to wander in to dark spaces in their mind, as the looming oppressive presence of the tracks trigger the synapses.
My pick of the release being the fourth composition – Monetizing Fear.
