• islaja Ulual Yyy (CD, £6.75)

    label: Fonal Records

    Residing somewhere between the stream-of-consciousness moans of Jandek and the detuned psychedelic atmospheres of Sonic Youth. Shocking in its scope, "Ulual Yyy" feels something like a blackened fairytale as rendered through a haze of hallucinogenic drugs; cyclic percussion and tribal chants forcing their way through detuned shards of electric guitar and fuzzy synthesiser leads while Merje's distinctive voice holds everything together.
