Mighty Great Review by Recent Music Heroes
Joxfield ProjeX - Insult on the Dance Floor (2012)
/Krautrock, Ambient, Trance rock, Progressive rock, Motorik, Avant-rock, Experimental rock, Alternative dance, Industrial rock, Psychedelia/
Comment: Swedish duo Joxfield ProjeX (Oax, and Yan) arrived after a series of excellent albums issued on Clinical Archives and seminal collaborations with progressive rock luminaries (Pat Mastelotto, Geoff Leigh, Kenji Siratori). This time their brand new one is distinctly related to their personal Tin Can Music. There is plenty of experimental music tendencies out there prompted in part by reconstruction of space rock/ambient rock and krautrock-based elements and in part by dance-appealed propulsions, however, all of that is effectively disseminated and thereafter channelized into a formidable industrial tinged psychedelic groove. More specifically, intense hard rock riffs are seamlessly mixed up with electronic effects and mesmeric rhythm sections below it. OnlyFloating is the exception due to its blissed-out ambient and concrete sounds blended contemplation. There can be drawn parallels upon the likes of fydhws, Neu!, aboombong, PAS, Faust, Asian Women On The Telephone, Spacemen 3, Vibracathedral Orchestra etc. In conclusion, the whole is on the ball by any means (I got psychedelic vertigo by listening to it twice in a row). Obviously one of the most underrated collectives all around the world.
These are words we really like to read
So, mighty THANKS, Kert, from the 2 Bums
