Anmeldelse af Severin “Safe Following Distance” (Petrola 80, 2018) – Af Emil Grarup

På fredag udkommer den tredje udgivelse på Petrola 80, et relativt nystartet pladeselskab, som har sine rødder i det københavnske miljø for eksperimenterende elektronisk musik. EP’en har fået navnet “Safe Following Distance”, er 4 numre lang og kan tilskrives Severin, et nyt alias, bag hvilket Jens Konrad Barrett gemmer sig. Udover sit virke i technoduoen Lyra Valenza (som for nyligt er blevet af signet af britiske Opal Tapes), i det akustiske ensemble Josiah Konder og som medlem af gruppen bag Petrola 80, har Jens Konrad tidligere været aktiv under navnet Sansernes Rus samt som hovedansvarlig for det hedengangne båndselskab Blodrøde Floder.

Yves Tumor – Perfectly unpredictable (live report)

English April 2 2018 Yves Tumor Mayhem 10

Yves Tumor, Khalil, Scandinavian Star and Soho Rezanejad hosted by Lowlife Scum and Knife Magazine at Mayhem 23.3.2018. Review and all photos by Cameron Pagett.

“Don’t fuck with my shield! Don’t fuck with my shield! …”

It’s the fourth and final set on a crowded Mayhem night and the headliner Yves Tumor has broken or rather, ripped his way through his plastic cage which had separated him from the audience for much of the first portion of his set. The music, or rather the drilling, cerebral, sordid symphony of siren like noise complete with jackhammering, invasive vocals called from the fog for a sense of security. Young men scurried from the imaginary room once partitioned by painter’s plastic which still adorned the majority of empty wallspace in the room.

“Don’t fuck with my shield! Don’t fuck with my shield!” Cries for respect in the midst of full body assault sound filled the space momentarily. Yves stares into a young woman’s eyes standing beyond the table with his controls resting on it. Stares into her eyes possessed with the same madness jolting from the speakers. This is aggressive. Engage or leave.
