Alva Noto – Univrs 2×12″ – Raster-Noton

Alva Noto mastermind and Raster-Noton cohort Carsten Nicolai doesn’t seem to be mellowing with age.  On the contrary, his spectacular live sets have become increasingly visceral and abrasive, reflecting a frequently similar drift in the Raster-Noton catalog.

In line with this shift, Univers is an album of precise tones and atomized sound design, mostly in the service of harsh industrial rhythms.  And as with all releases on the label, there’s similar attentiveness given to the visual presentation: this a deluxe gatefold with minimalistic utilitarian layout.  Recommended for fans of Sleeparchive, Byetone, Mika Vainio et al.
