More Info

Irgendwo zwischen GODFLESH YOU BLACK EMPOROR, MOGWAI, SLOWDIVE und MY BLOODY VALENTINE liegt der epische Sphren-Instrumental-Rock von MANDELBROT SET....

"MANDELBROT SET sind eine laute Band, sie lieben drhnende Bsse, benutzen Samples und wechseln die Instrumente whrend der Songs, hauptschlich sind sie aber gerne einfach nur laut. Gegrndet von Ex-HENTAI Keung, komplettiert von Drummer Simon und Multiinstrumentalistin Melisa, vereinigen die drei ihre Liebe zum Constellation Label mit elektronischem Equipment, Live Sampling und Effekten, mit einer aggressiven Rhythmik im Stile von SHELLAC und mit melodischem, epischem Krach (der sogar Kevin Shields neidisch machen knnte), zu einer gewaltigen, kreativen Energie, die man auf "All Our Actions Are Constantly..." um die Ohren geschleudert bekommt." [Cargo / press release]
Mandelbrot Set are a loud band. They like their drones and their converse-gazing, they like to use sample pedals and to change instruments during sets, but mainly they like to be loud, and they like to do it differently. Formed by Keung, from the ashes of his previous band, Hentai, of whom Drowned In Sound remarked "It's a relief to know that not all angsty teenagers listen to Radiohead and spend the rest of their adolescence trying to emulate Muse. Some of them stick Boards Of Canada stickers on their guitars, acquire DD-5 sample pedals and violin bows, and proceed to work the Mogwai-esque quiet / loud / louder / apocalyptic dynamic till their ears bleed." Mandelbrot Set take their love of all things on the Constellation label, their penchant for electronics, effects pedals and live sampling, their Shellac-esque rhythmic aggression, and combine it all into a wall of noise, melody and epic structure that would make Kevin Shields envious. Joined by Simon on drums and multi-instrumentalist Melisa, the disparate influences and creative energies of the three combine to create a inspired palette of sound and texture, a dense cloud of harmonic resonance, yet timed with enough space and clarity for all the individual elements to shine through.
