When it comes to head-scratchers, no one plows into the scalp like Bruit Direct. For their 24th release, they’ve ponied up this melange by the duo Femme, whose lp, Chroma, summons forth a soundscape of stellar post trance, electro magma. As dense as it is deft. The 10 gurgling innards effortlessly spewed out here rank it alongside other Moltenadelic CO-2 snuffers such as Ilitch’s ‘Periodik Mindtrouble’ & Junji Hirose + Yoshihide Otomo’s ‘Silanganan Ingay’. Lush, foreboding & fantastical, ‘Chroma’s’ pocket universe of seductive dread could spook the sheen right off’ve Moebius’ Airtight Garage & there ain’t a damn thing Major Grubert or Jerry Cornelius gonna do about it. The future doesn’t get anymore Untopian than this.
