Amoeba Review

01/09/2014

Heatsick's second release for Pan is an epic recapitulation of the project's aesthetic (skewed casio dance music) and politics. Surrealistic spoken word infiltrates the album. "Mimosa" uses a chintzy bossa beat and ends in a sax solo, yet these signifiers of relaxing music are stripped of their typical roles and serve to make the music more hypnotic and disorienting. The music, as per previous Heatsick material, is incredibly accomplished especially considering Steven Warwick's weapon of choice is a battered Casio with missing keys. "Emerge" is a prime example of Warwick's ability to float between moods easily. The track starts with a nasty house baseline and clap, yet the refrain flips the mood completely, using plaintive piano over fluttering string chords. Closer "Accelerationista" sounds like 1/4" tape being whipped around at the end of their rope - a subtle call for capitalism to speed on faster and faster 'til the wheels fall off.
