This is the second full-length release from Cologne's Napoli Is Not Nepal, the one-man project featuring Hendryk Martin. First influenced by his involvement with the hardcore scene, he then began to mix electronica within a more traditional pop format, and thus Napoli Is Not Nepal was born. His music's main feature is the combination of technical sounds with traditional music, creating a fresh and innovative style. There's no user's manual or blueprint for NINN's style, he just creates sounds he enjoys. On his Shitkatapult debut Revolv_er, he combined fragments of jazz music with clicks and snaps. It was also a try-out period for strange song-titles that indicated what the album was all about: electronic monotony combined with organic aesthetics and quite a good portion of nihilism. Boredom Is Always Counterrevolutionary uses the same sense of nihilism and combines it with pure ecotronics: the songs get back to melody, but are housed within a rough but smart sound-design; far away from typical dancefloors, but great for afterhour-lounge beach settings in the morning hours. NINN uses instruments the way they were meant to be played: acoustic guitars hover over crunching electronic beats that are humanized with a round bass, Rhodes and strings soothe the hyperactivity out of a shuffling, glitchy, minimalist beat pattern, proving that NINN's unique brand of indietronics remains as innovative as ever.
