MOTH MOUTH SCENIC FASH­ION

The Georgia Straight - - Music -

It prob­a­bly wasn’t Moth Mouth’s in­ten­tion to make such a thor­oughly au­tum­nal-sound­ing al­bum. Af­ter all, Scenic Fash­ion is a doc­u­ment of a live per­for­mance the ex­per­i­men­tal elec­tronic-mu­sic quar­tet (com­pris­ing Dave Leith, Lee Hutzu­lak, John Mut­ter, and Matt Skillings) gave in May of 2016. The shift­ing tim­bres of the ti­tle track, how­ever, shim­mer with all the colours of a late-septem­ber sun­rise, while the 14-minute-plus psy­che­delic elec­tro-dub night­mare “Ev­ery­thing We’ve Been Told” in­cludes enough dis­torted voices and ghostly echoes to earn it a place on your Hal­loween playlist, some­where be­tween Skinny Puppy and Alien Sex Fiend.
