Ps Stamps Back & Olekranon - Ps Stamps Back & Olekranon
Another enigmatic release from Inam, in substance as well as packaging. Here, PS Stamps Back join Olekranon. This self-titled release wavers back and forth between the haunting and the harsh, but its nine songs work offer enough enigma and passion to compensate for a style that becomes set early on.
"Hantaki" opens things with the sound of a phone connection slowly grows to abrasive noise, a low to high pitch that is the structure of most of the tracks." Sunrise Found Him Wishing He Were Asleep Instead" is a cinematic, sweeping ambient piece that slowly builds to a crazed tone that drives "Angle," which is a serious Noise piece.
The bands also offer dreamlike, shimmering Krautrock, with "Long Quest to Zero" the best example of that. The finale, "Juices Flow," is a deep industrial tracks, but with a sympathetic drone that makes it almost comforting.
Both PS Stamps Back and Olekranon make mysterious, moody ambient with overtones of brutal mayhem. This collaboration covers their favored ground with grace and assaultive intimidation. Through it all they maintain a measured power at ease in the mystic and the back alley.
