Controlled Bleeding

Larva Lumps and Baby Bumps (Green Vinyl)

Label: Artoffact

Format: LPx2

Genre: Electronic

Out of stock

Gatefold sleeve. Controlled Bleeding announces its first proper studio album since 2002. Larva Lumps And Baby Bumps is a startling record: it somehow flawlessly mixes industrial noise and prog rock into a beautifully stream-of-conscious work that is at once fairly brutal and lovingly serene. The opening piece, Driving Through Darkness, could be the title of a pop-ballad, until you realize the actual meaning of the word 'driving'; jumping out at you seemingly in medias res, the album and track crash thru a minute of jazz-improv and clicking bass that give way to a delightful guitar, before grabbing you again on the road to darkness. The second track, Carving Song, is an industrial monster that sounds like the spawn of Test Dept. and Cubanate, and the epic, 22-minute long closer The Perks of Being a Perv, an instrumental throbbing piece of industrial-meets-prog confusion, is breathtaking.

Both vinyl and CD come with an album of bonus material, out-takes from the Larva Lumps sessions that both label and artists felt were far too strong to keep off the release. The bonus material was engineered by famed New York producer Martin Bisi (Swans, John Zorn, Boredoms, White Zombie, Bill Laswell, Foetus).
