EOMAC - Spoock

  • Share
  • Throughout a solo career as EOMAC, Irishman Ian McDonnell has never produced a track as melodically twisted and hollowed-out as "Spoock." He has shown a light touch with garage (with mixed results) but this EP on Killekill is altogether more paranoid. "Spoock" is the centerpiece. Over a staticky kick drum, McDonnell stacks shrill, hyperventilating textures. The un-quantized progression is predictable, but that doesn't make its escalating thrust any less effective. Lucy's remix is more rickety, with a droning low-end and a breakdown that wheezes in the atmosphere. "Stylised And Desensitised" and "No Name" are equally iced-over, with stuttering vocal loops that more clearly recall EOMAC's past output.
