Petit Cochon LP
Spectrum Spools 35 / AUS / 2014
"Petit Cochon" is a total burner, no exceptions. From the opening cryptic threat of "Powerful Magnets" into the serrated pummeling of "The Bluffer's Corporation", it becomes clear very quickly that no punches will be pulled and that "Petit Cochon" is a heavy affair. Donadios signature sample manipulation in tandem with live electronics and particular mixing processes hit new highs with the manic clatter of "Suck Out the Reason", which shifts and shuffles between huge snare drums and whispers from the void. "Stains Left Unnamed", like it's title suggests, is a grim and filthy ordeal with head-spinning delay ringing alongside jagged and fractured rhythm.
