Scanner - Fibolae
Anna von Hausswolff’s Pomperipossa Records becomes the first label to host a new Scanner LP in eight years. Fibolae deals primarily with the changes that have happened in Robert Rimbaud’s life since 2009’s Rockets, Unto The Edge Of Rockets. Beginning with a series of answer phone messages left by lost loved ones - his brother, his mother and Coil’s John Balance to name but three - the LP touches on doom metal, techno, post-punk and synthwave while remaining firmly in its own lane. ‘Spirit Cluster’ is a John Carpenter theme that never was, while ‘Savage is Savage’ is an unrelenting assault of drums and synths that brings to mind a less refined version of These New Puritans’ Hidden.
