About This Product

This is the triumphant and life affirming debut album by About This Product from Houston, Texas. It’s an apocalyptarian vision, a chorus of many metabolisms, a toxic battle between neurotransmitters. Their production style shares affinities with Pita and most of the Mego label, Merzbow, and Iggy & The Stooges. The texure of the individual sounds could be compared with Gyorgy Ligetti and/or the Sonic Youth electroacoustic series; the aggressive percussion shares common ground with The Boredoms, Black Dice, Phthalocyanine and possibly Autechre circa Confield. It’s a binge of sharded delays, crippled drumkits, and DSP overkill; this is what a present day punk band should aspire to.
