The full review...
PARANOID FOUNDATION – THREADS (CD by Paranoid Foundation)
Andrew Walker worked two months abroad on a ship in the cold South Atlantic Ocean. He spent every spare moment of work to create music in his little cabin. He worked with the pre-recorded voice of Crispin Lee. His voice was already great mixed at the album Closedown (Vital Weekly 775) with drony sound layers. For now Andrew Walker mixes the voice with less abstract music. Every track has it's own rhythm and beats which supported by dark tones and basic melodies. The music is dark, ongoing, melancholic and atmospheric. The minimal melodies take care for open moments in the compressed mood. The music refers to Electronic Body Music, like Front 242, but less industrial and aggressive. The strength of Paranoid Foundation is that they know how to create an strong atmosphere in a short moment. The albums have a straight idea and they work it out in the time they needed it and no minute longer. Great album! (JKH)
