Silent Movie Sounds III compilation 12″ – Rough House Rosie

rhr008Cologne-based Rough House Rosie has been outlining a clear aesthetic of beatdown house, uptempo downtempo, and lo-fi techno throughout their few years of existence. From the beginning, they’ve been hosting the Silent Movie Sounds compilation series as an exploration of this vibe by four disparate artists, this third entry continues that effort.

The A side tracks are squelchy, weird, slow, almost acidic; Mituo Shiomi squeaks are bubbly and the straightforward beat evokes a kind of smooth progress, whereas Appian’s rhythms are more of a clumsily swaggering boogie. Alex Danilov turns in one of his most laid-back tunes to date, Chicago’s Taelue closes the compilation with perhaps the most intricate track of the lot, gradually layering on more and more elements until it feels like an overcast take on a Guidance Records groove.
