Helm – Silencer [PAN043]


Helm’s Impossible Symmetry was one of PAN’s most far-out musical transmissions of 2012 – something that was no mean feat – and on Silencer, Luke Younger continues his exploration of sound’s darker corners with four equally as nuanced productions. The title track seems to tap into the similar rhythmic zone as Demdike Stare’s recent Testpressing releases, combining noisy textures with clattering rhythms, while “Mirrored Palms” creates something more meditative altogether, as a drawn out drone creates images of a scorched wasteland, and “Bergamo” and “The Haze” comes across as more elegiac in their approach, despite their lumbering Emptyset-style rhythms.
