Departing from the band-based setup of previous releases, Acolytes continue their exploration of loop-based paradigms with Rupture. The release expands upon the murky jarring patchwork aesthetic of the 2012 release, Known Nonsense, replacing brooding song structures with a more driving, visceral, and relentless sound. Rupture encapsulates the paranoia and angst felt in an increasingly unrecognizable world. Liquified rhythms attempt to define an unmappable headspace typified by IO overload and wired hyperactivity, become mired in deep delays and sedate unease. Ostensible computer music, tracks such as "Feelings 2", deviate from the clinical sensibilities associated with the genre, like on "On The Grid", where out-of-sync drums and synth lines in elliptic orbits take it to messier lo-fi territories with no defined sense of shape or tempo. Edition of 200.
