After a 3 year hiatus, the electronic trio Skandalon re-emerges with Subluxation, it's 2nd full length release. As on Cause & Cure (2004), Subluxation fuses the organic and the ethereal to produce electronic music that feels 'composed' instead of 'cut & pasted'. Subluxation offers 12 sample heavy tracks with floating voices, menacing beats, and distorted melodies that have become the hallmark of Skandalon. 'Studiohead' is the luxuriant single, featuring a bassy, mangled kick drum and a blip-ish melody you'll not soon forget. The 'Trash'd Remix' of Studiohead is equally compelling, and thematic of the entire work. 'UnTrickable' is a raucous romp of drumloops & spoken-word samples, hearkening back to the efforts of Jack Dangers & Meat Beat Manifesto. Also take note of 'Intraference', the anthemic dirge with a memorable 80's-style synth solo, and 'Drains', a dramatic three-part composition reminiscent of Tear Garden, In The Nursery, or even Vangelis. In short, Subluxation is the cure for the common electronic, and satisfies all extremes of the genre's listenership. Enjoy.
