Spectrum Spools

Released: 8th June 2015 | 7 track techno album

Ren Schofield's Container took the world of underground electronic music by storm with the debut LP in 2011. Following massive amounts of touring and the powerful follow up LP, LP, in 2012, the project became a must-experience staple everywhere from U.S. basement gigs to Berghain. After two fantastic E.P. recordings on Morphine and Liberation Technologies, Container returns with the first full-length album since 2012, simply titled LP.

LP is the most explosive offering in the Container oeuvre, capturing the raw and unhinged essence of the live Container experience while exploring new compositional and sonic limits.

The opening Eject wastes no time with it's instant feedback squeal backed by a barrage of pounding, distorted percussion. The concomitant storm of misfiring FX and derailed drum patterns set the stage the for aural pandemonium that this third LP delivers. Remover and Peripheral are dense and intricate structural compositions ruthless in their delivery and infectious in rhythm, stretching the known limits of the projects sound into welcome new realms. Tracks like Appliance and Cushion find Schofield in his most vicious form, with floor destroying tempos and a miraculously adroit sense of arrangement. Somehow, LP manages to simultaneously be the most palatable and most damaged contribution yet. Patchwork polyrhythm motifs, melodic (albeit fully blasted) hook sensibilities, and ballistic synthesized sounds are melted down together and shaped into some of the most rewarding, enjoyable works yet heard on any of the LP offerings. The closing Calibrate pounds with a hypnotic churn, growing into a stasis of red-hot squelches and deranged electronic malfunction recalling some of the earliest tape works Schofield created. LP gives a sense of full circle, blurring the end and the beginning into a baffling riddle that can only be admired and never solved.

Schofield has enigmatically crafted his most insane Container album to be the most architecturally dextrous and club-minded, never compromising his fundamentals while evolving the project in an utterly satisfying fashion. LP is the most locked-in full length recording to date, long overdue and absolutely essential.
