Future music duo Second Woman’s sophomore full-length for
Spectrum Spools further hones their distinctive fusion of shapeshifting
software sculpture and tessellated footwork. Shivering digital
textures oscillate with and against algorithmically mapped percussion
samples; smeared synthetic chords levitate in the distance; stabs of
digital noise punctuate the mix in twitchy, time-distorting patterns.
Their anamorphosis verges on ascetic: stark, splintered waveforms
rendered into unique fiber optic hieroglyphs.
Multi-instrumentalists Josh Eustis and Turk Dietrich share a deep
history going back to their days in the New Orleans ambient electronic
community, as part of Telefon Tel Aviv and Belong, respectively.
Even so, S/W pushes beyond their combined discographies to date,
flexing impossibilities, building rhythms from arrhythmia, teasing veiled
emotion from bold iterations of cold code.
