Pete Swanson/Moin – Positive/Elsie [2012, Confessions]

20120723-114013.jpg

Exceptional 7″ offering to kick start Blackest Ever Black’s new imprint, Confessions. Side A finds Pete Swanson picking up where he left off with his Man with Potential LP last year, weird repetitive electronics that people tend to call techno (I don’t really agree) but this is all about the B Side for me with Moin showcasing some very sleek guitar drones laid on top of a numbed out 4/4 kick and the proper amount of spoken word that doesn’t become cheesy. Very curious as to where this venture will go with future releases, but definitely off to an amazing start!
