Robin Fox - Threnody To Now [Room40 Promo]

Another fresh one to be released via Room40 on December 3rd, 2k21 is "Threnody To Now", the new, roughly 34 minutes spanning album effort by Robin Fox which will be put out on the circuit as a limited cassette tape. Split into two parts, subsequently named "Threnody For Now I" and "Threnody For Now II", Fox presents two extended takes / patches of eurorack based modular recording magic of striking intensity on this one, brooding and ominous from the get go, evolving into shrieking, ear-piercing high frequency modulations and swampy, yet unsettling if not even threatening low frequency pulses which - even though partly of droning nature - could be well described as less threnodial yet rather emulating the sound, feel and angst brought on by the sirens of doom before the final apocalyptic air raid hits humanity, bringing forth a total wipe out, full on annihilation and an unseen level of over-extinction. Doomsday shall come and this is its soundtrack. Lovely.
