Nach der schnen "Psychoneurose" schon die zweite Zusammenarbeit von LAND USE mit BIANCHI. Zwei lange dark-drone Stcke, sanft walllende sub-marine akustische Massen in denen sich alles verliert: Stimmen, Sirentne, Klackern, tauchen am Rande der Wahrnehmung auf um in endlosen Weiten wieder zu verschwinden...

"Maurizio Bianchi is back on vinyl! A new special limited edition from Small Voices and the father of Italian industrial music, together with Land Use from Holland in this new chapter of his legendary career. An oppressive meditative obscure early-industrial symphony based on two monolithic pieces of thick throbbing stuff. A long deep trip into the darker meanderings of the human mind... good luck!" [label notes]

"...Let's be honest, we have no idea what any of that means, but it is clouded in mystery, and in that way definitely represents the sounds contained on TSE-K, which at its very core is a minimal drone record, a gorgeous one at that. nothing really harsh or heavy, more dark and soothing and dreamy, but within the swirling low end tones and softly whirring rumbles lurk all manner of melody, and of texture, overtones create strange rhythmic pulses, the sounds occasionally coalesce into
thick shimmering throbs, before slipping back into the drifting blackness below. In the case of TSE-K, headphones are most definitely like a diving bell, letting the listener sink into the inky blackness, and observe the various sonic elements and subtle melodic activities that are all tangled up in the blackened layers of warm ominous murk. The flip side offers up more of the same, but the drone element is a bit more subtle, more of a backdrop for slivers of feedback, and grinding bits of textural buzz, more colors, the shades of black bleeding into browns and reds, not quite as abject and cold, streaks of glowing warmth shooting through a wide open expanse of greyed ambience and abstract post industrial minimalist drift."
