Radikal Satan – Clochette (2010/2013)

/Avant-garde, Crossover, New Weird Argentina, Tango, Sampledelic, Experimentalism, World music, Apocalyptic folk, Industrial, Drone folk, Spoken word, Dark folk, Neoclassical, Improvised music, Neofolk/

Comment: Radikal Satan is a duo from Buenos Aires, Argentina who has issued a bunch of albums since 2003. More profoundly, this 5-track release is unquestionably radical due to the artist`s keenness to lace organically ominous folk progressions with gothic concrete music snippets and brooding industrial panoramas. “Folk music” does mean both “world music”, and “dark folk music” in the recent context. For instance, concertina`s drones are juxtaposed against anguished vocal progressions and emphasized spoken word rows and bold double bass chords to express his feelings and senses. At times Radikal Satan`s sound makes progress into exulting tango grooves which is simultaneously unbelievable and very welcome. All in all, the result is truly impressive igniting for next steps to explore the whole discography by this artist.
