Italian drake Dave Saved makes a welcome return with the ene-rave-ted yet burning sensations of Energydream.
Two years since Power And Silence: Deindustrialization, he’s exploring a sound somewhere between Lorenzo Senni’s still-cherished Stargate 12”, the screwed epics of OPN’s KGB Man, and a gritty streak of sludge rock.
Time of No Future unfurls a screwed and charred industrial landscape dotted with yearning vocals, and Energydream beautifully murks a queasy quantum jelly trance style beside the highway cruiser Let It Evolve.
Ultimo (Fracturing Believe) reaches out into strobing, glitching fantasia somewhere between The Sprawl and v1984, and After/Life (A New Radiant World) turns the party darker with slackened bass strings and moaning comedown voices.
