My first exposure of Mincemeat or Tenspeed was when he opened up for Social Junk in Denton, TX. My recollection of their sound is it's oddly melodic ferocity, full of rich overtones and singular, trance-like beats unlike any you'll hear from drum machines or tracker rhythms. In other words, it was lovely like entrails. The words “sassy deathgasm” popped into my mind during the show and they stuck. As a result of their gig, I decided to call my new blog that same term.
I bought “All Critters” after the gig. This is prime electronic noise punk with uncommon derivations: lots of fx pedals, no computers; in other words, music which is made with a unique process to fucked up results. Keep your eyes and ears open for “Strange Gods,” the new LPs by this feller. I've been in love with this amalgam of rock and electronica since I first put it on my turntable.
You can get an idea of both the process and sound of Mincemeat or Tenspeed
at this Youtube post, though the quality of audio in no way captures the bombast and subtlety of the music. 8/10 -- P. Somniferum (2 December, 2009)
