Murky, low-lit transmission from the enigmatic Civilistjävel!, whose shadowy profile still remains shrouded in anonymity despite being 4/5 releases deep and now with this cassette from excellent London record store / radio station Kindred.  This 30 min session runs the full gauntlet of lonely, smouldering synth drones and frost-bitten ambience, occasionally laced with noir melodies straight out of a cold-war thriller, assured to let us know that there could, or might be.. trouble around the corner.  Its got me thinkin of Alan Splet’s clanging, ominous OST works for Lynch’s cult flick Eraserhead, or fond images Mika and Ilpo from Pan Sonic kicking around a desolate industrial estate high up in the Northern latitudes, clunking bits of discarded metal to see what sounds good.  But there’s a more dubwise sound creeping into the Swede’s work towards the end of the tape, recalling the fathomless dub chords of Rhythm & Sound as if they were being played in the hull of a disused container ship.  Appropriately bleak yet strangely comforting music for today’s winter solstice.. sold out everywhere :-/ (Mint / New)
