★★★ Calibrate DENOVALI. CD/DL/LP
There’s dark, there’s disturbing and there’s Ricardo Donoso. The Brazilian composer and sound designer throws industrial, sci-fi soundtrack and techno tropes into a brazier and sets them ablaze. The resulting pyre of counter-rhythms, grinding loops and abrasive sub-melody is nightmarish and discomforting, but makes for compulsive listening, nevertheless.
