Vindicatrix – Hume / Unborn Vectors (Mordant Music 045) – 10/10
You can’t expect something ordinary from Mordant Music. “Hume” walks on the borderline of real and imaginary world, presenting first a theatrical performance by an uncredited and dramatic vocalist (Vindicatrix?) who is doing it in Fritz Ostermayer style. Electro-acoustic composition and sleepy bass serve as backdrop. This is for the first half of the A-side. Without interruption we move on to technoid part that is welcomed by cheering crowd and thereafter mixed with some drops of acid, to make your feet move.
“Unborn Vectors” is another vocal performance, assisted by orchestral arrangements, various bass facets and percussion elements. At mid-track it morphs again into a rhythmic, techno-house minded and acid infected floor fare, preserving strings.
An awesome record that cements Mordant’s position among the most forward-thinking and out-of-the-box labels.
