It is a Swiss/Canadian duo that inhabit the African Ghost Valley. Their latest full length offering, EKE, unfolds with sharp, short blasts of concrete sound culled from the wilderness of a deep Dadaist nightmare. They speak a broken language of obliterated electronic shrapnel mixed with the debris of a haunted ancestral city. Uneasy listening calling to mind Illusion of Safety or even the New Blockaders, with just a few moments of serenity. In African Ghost Valley, music listens to you.
