Alien Jams presents Planet Bangs, the 4th album from NOCHEXXX, following on from 2015's dirt-driven apocalyptic electro jaunt Plot Defender (Type Recordings). This six track LP plants another stick in the mud, showcasing the producers love for oddball tape-saturated electronic delirium. Planet Bangs is clearly an ecosystem in distress...; METAWITCH's clanging rocks paves the way for creepy unsettling yelps and 303 squelch - an acid drenched broomstick joyride over mounds of rolling subs and hilly sines-waves - On STICKSHIFT, straight-jacketed conga loops barely spit enough voltage to hold pace; like a sputtering Raymond Scott machine in respiratory collapse. Wafting familiar smoke signals originally lit by 90s era Warp and Detroit techno, OVERHOUND springs out the trap with a booty bounce towards the finish line. Bound in an appropriate fever-dream penciled by the mighty Zeke Clough. 180g vinyl, mastered by Rupert Clervaux.
