anbb. mimikry in othermusic´s best of 2010: new releases & reissues.
This full-length collaboration between Alva Noto and Einsturzende Neubauten frontman Blixa Bargeld is surprisingly more accessible than most anything else either of these two parties have done in their respective careers. Following the 10-minute litmus test of an album opener, which moves from a few minutes of Bargeld's processed and looped shrieks into elegiac organ clusters and fragments of speech, fluttering banshee wails and "industrial" klangtones, Mimickry dives headfirst into what Suicide might have sounded like had they been formed today in the file-sharing age. Imagine if Max's Kansas City were a dingy internet cafe rather than a playground for New York's scuzzy glamorous underworld -- glitching, malfunctioning textural machine rhythms, throbbing patterns of test tones, and Blixa character acting and overdubbing himself into a performance that's part theatre, part post-punk, part exorcism. But both collaborators deliver a peculiar sort of pop musicality that was a wonderful surprise; let's hope these two keep this collaboration going on for a while, as this is one of the best recorded documents to come out of the digital age of sound production.
