Gave this album a visit today.
Kristoffer Lo is a Tube player from Norway who ventures into the future of sound with his pedal experiments. His latest work, The Black Meat, is a powerful piece that envelopes the listener from start to finish. The whole thing has this weight to it that doesn’t resolve until the final moments of the album. A distant glance at the album may write it off as boring as the droning sounds remain relatively stagnant, but this is how the minimalism is achieved. Through the intense sound aesthetic, Lo brings the listener in just close enough to catch a glimpse at the tiny subtleties that articulate the overarching thematic journey of the album.
