about

Decoder: "Five songs long, for a direct reference point, brainsoutclock initially recalls the records Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland released as Hype Williams in the early 2010s, before skirting closer to the sonic deconstructions of the everyday authored by current experimental club music figures like Arca, Lotic, and Rabit. Song by song, the mood shifts, with the connective thread being reverberating digitally-manipulated vocal samples. Around that main theme, he plays with asymmetrical drum programming, 90s home video game melodies and rhythms, smashed-glass-as-percussion, nightmarish screams and industrial snares, surf-rock guitar loops and nature sounds as beat collage. Throughout its 18 minutes running time brainsoutclock feels like a slow and feverish disillusion of the real, the mundane everyday world gradually melting away into an amorphous sea of almost-is-almost-isn’ts. In a perfect amplification of its surreal qualities, the EP is packaged up in CGI artwork that looks almost exactly like the music sounds. brainsoutclock isn’t an easy listen, but it’s rougher patches only serve to amplify it’s most euphoric moments. There’s always sunshine beyond the storm clouds, even if it’s a pixelated 8-bit sunrise."

The Wire: "The most disposable of global pop aphorisms glide upon the surface of Yeongrak's electro glossolalia. The spines of these five tracks were snipped from glossy samples of wannabe R&B crooners seeking a spot on American Idol, surf-rock techno, tropical house insipidness and heavily modulated Arabic pop chanting . . . and everything is susceptible to wanton tone-bending and juvenile irreverence."
