Recently released via Thrill Jockey in late April is the n-th album of the the Swedish band outfit The Skull Defekts which have been releasing on every format from file to tape to CD and vinyl since 2005 and now are making serious ninefold noise on their recent longplay piece "Dances In Dreams Of The Known Unknown", serving a dry, bass-lacking, garage-y but ultimately seductive amalgamation of killer DesertRock, PostPunk and NoizeWave with a ritual'esque touch - a forecast of a looming armageddon, a dark ride into an unknown wilderness, the exploration of ancient drives and instincts that's to be praised by Drone Rock lovers as well as psyched out Goths alike. If you love your Rock music raw, uncut, sickness infested, druggy and fucked up, if you prefer grey conrete walls to any given colour and possibly identify with the term crepuscule creeper this one's here to darken your day. And ours. For a reason. Highly addictive and fully recommended.
