Legion Of Green Men Baqontraq

The beginnings of the first attempt by the Ontario duo to create their new LP after an already extended absence failed miserably after the loss of the project to a corrupted hard drive. Not to be stifled, LOGM started again from scratch and now five years later, we finally have Baqontraq. In this creation they have realised an electronic amalgamation primarily derivative of dub but with the spatial atmospherics of techno and more acidic sounds, which are consistently gloomier and hazier than before, with a low bass grumble and esoteric, rippling grooves. The continuity of the sounds does become draining but fundamentally provides a unified structure to the album and gives it more completeness, in keeping with their recent expeditions into film scoring. As such, it is easy to appreciate the album but it is not easily listenable for any sober duration because of its abstract and depressive demeanour. (Post Contemporary)
