Review: Shackleton

“Once it finally locks into a convulsing, serpentine rhythm, Shackleton begins layering stranger noises still: Transylvanian hammer horror riffage, clattering hooks, no-wave synth stabs. For someone who has admitted to spending months at a time perfecting a single drum loop, the torrential hail feels cast off at random, triggered in real-time on an ironing-board’s worth of cheap circuit-bent instruments. It’s the sound of Shackleton cutting loose in delirious, utterly entrancing fashion.”
