GOLDBLUM "Goldblum" C18 (Het Generiek)

Marjin Verbiesen and Michiel Klein are both well-versed musicians in the Dutch underground scene, with experiences ranging from opening for Health and !!! to being covered in The Wire to being active in no less than seven different bands that I could immediately find in my cursory research. The latest is Goldblum, where they make lightly noisy tape loops from all sorts of samples. There's stuff on here that sounds like it's on your grandfather's broken record player, and tracks that sound like strings collapsing mid-course. The highlight is "Jazz of Thin Air," the longest and most quietly torturous song. You only have to listen to this brief release to hear how all that work has paid off for Goldblum.
