Title: Future Life
Format: LP
Label: Aguirre
Country: Belgium
Price: $20.00
“Imagine you find yourself wandering places unreal, lost and desperate, only to have it gradually dawn in you, youve been laying waste the invisible lands in your mind. Your desperateness becomes amazement as you start paving paths to link and sync barren levels of reality and start to familiarize with different formless and shape-shifting entities manifesting as inhabitants of apparently different inner worlds. You are being prepared for a major evolutionary phase-shift regarded unreal and I believe that is what future life is about, the differences in realities, and their level of importance in the whole picture. Part 1: simulations (untitled 1-2-3-4), Part 2: reflections (untitled 5-6-7-8)." - Aguirre.

Title: Ababababababas (Blue Lion Child)
Format: LP
Label: Further
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Do you ever listen to a record and worry about its creators sanity? Granted, it rarely happens, but in the case of Innercity -- Antwerp producer Hans Dens -- its a legitimate concern. Thankfully, Denss apparent madness manifests itself in music so uncompromising and off the charts of classification that it convinces you that any kind of sonic innovation at this late date demands a bit of mental instability. By way of explanation, Dens says, "People forget that there is only magic in this world, mostly black, nothing more." In other news: You will never confuse this Innercity with Kevin Saundersons Inner City. ABABABABABABAS (Blue Lion Child) makes Denss rather strange first album on Further, 2012s A Lion Baptism, seem like radio-friendly fodder by comparison. The producer admits, "This release is surely one of my harsher, bleak ones... I tried to keep it pure, and again bleak. Also put the keyboards in the shelf for this one; its all guitar and violin through an array of effects..." "Baals (Kitten Trumpeteer Choir)" fades in with what sounds like waves of harsh, scalding feedback -- lets call it "the black metal of ambient." Dens conjures pitiless, post-apocalyptic atmospheres, but imbues them with a residual glow of dignity. The tidal "Masks and Mold Matter" could be a noir soundtrack thats too weird and nightmarish even for David Lynch. Its main sound source sounds like the irradiated molecules of a psych-rock guitar riff by Chromes Helios Creed. What passes for a respite in Innercitys harsh sonic universe comes from "Raragrams," with ill oscillations that seem to have escaped from Gil Mellés groundbreaking Andromeda Strain soundtrack (1971). On "In Abra and Umbra," Dens creates a desolate Plutonian ambience thatll give your ears frostbite, unleashing clouds of unidentified frying sonics. With perverse whimsy, Dens lets some unfeasibly heavy beats intrude in the last minute. "A-Baba-Al-One" defines a new form of chilling horror-film soundtrack; its synths actually shiver and moan. The album closes with "And Dead As All Black Acts," which sounds like a yeti trying to pound its way out of a casket. Anguished tones of unclassifiable extremity and distress send us out on a note of ecstatic bafflement. You realize youve reached the end of this record alive, and youre much stronger because of it. Featuring Bart De Paepe from Sloow Tapes. Artwork by Chloe Harris and poetry by Hans Dens. Cut by CGB @ Dubplates & Mastering." -Further.

Label: Ikuisuus
Country: Finland
Price: $19.00
"Second album from Belgian synthscaper Hans Dens, following up the highly acclaimed Future Life LP from 2010 (Aguirre Records). While being rooted in the Belgian underground alongside acts like Orphan Fairytale and Dolphins Into The Future, Innercity brings a more dystopic and bleak approach to the table with its monotonous and rhythmic set of sounds. 6 tracks. Recorded August 2010 in Antwerp. Mastered by Viktor Ottosson. Edition of 300 copies. Co-release with Release The Bats." - Ikuisuus.

"[Innercity] reflects biological diversity in spirit form, beautifully shifting from one amorpha to the next via repetition and mutation, like spirits basking in the Coptic glow of life before consciousness." - Daniel Lopatin, Oneohtrix Point Never.
