Molar
The Time And Motion Studies
False Walls Records
www.molar-music.com


This one's a real horrorshow.

Such uneasy listening might constipate the overly aggressive, or prove to be laxative for those in fear of this bizarre and implacable sound. The Time and Motion Studies is a highly effective piece of experimental electronica of sorts that exhibits a mastery of mood alteration. (Or distortion, perhaps?) But who would want to be in this kind of mood? If I ran a haunted house, I would be playing this CD over the PA system and spiking the punch with LSD. Talk about a rough trip. Psychiatrists would be eagerly awaiting the dearly departing on the other side with twitches of avarice at the thought of years of psychoanalysis.

If you're looking for a truly mind-bending, sonic experience that does more than merely skirt the edges of the dark side, but actually dredges the black mayonnaise up from the bottom, then Molar is definitely your cup of tea. I'd like to say that it's better for you than the sorts of drugs that would produce a similar effect, but sweaty, nocturnal flashbacks are a distinct possibility from prolonged exposure. I dare say it requires its own MSDS; a sort of industrial hazard in a gem case.

User assumes some risk from short-term and lasting effects both known and unknown, published and unpublished.

It is a violation of federal law to dispense contents of package in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
