Welcome return from erstwhile Oslo punk David Gurrik, a.k.a. Human Inferno, with a killer slab of advanced caveman electronics for Entr’acte. Gurrik was last spotted as Human Inferno on his outré label, Sonmoi, in a class split with Lasse Marhaug, and Medication marks his most substantial output in many years. Away from his involvement in “school politics” and the “local community”, it’s probably fair to say that music is a controlled vent for his life less normal, whether singing deadpan about visiting the psychiatrist with his wife over blunted pulses, growls and tempered white noise in Medication #1, or clashing cryptic lyrics with throbbing noise techno fundamentals worthy of the weirdest ‘floors in Medication #3. But it’s clear that middle age and kids haven’t blunted his punkish roots, they may be a bit more obfuscated and wizened, but there’s still a brutish intent to these tracks, albeit patiently refined with an amorphous, viscous effect at best in the B-side-spanning It’s About Time to Go, which comes across like he's making the best of a monotonous, stygian trudge to the shops for muesli and juice for the weans. It’s nowt flash, but it is blackly humorous and delivered with a stoic conviction that is, in its own way, life-affirming.
