With layers of sound over heavy beats and rhythm, like washes of color streaming with eddies of evolving hues hanging prominently as a compositional piece, the songs on Entropic Advance's Industrial Noise Control recall the darker moments of Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II. "Nothing Comes of It," meanwhile, with its persistent whorls of impending menace, inexplicably recalls early Death in June in its ability to capture a sense of decayed ancient culture hanging over the present. Wesley Davis's processed trumpet in that song is almost unrecognizable, but it is precisely that sound, inherently organic, that gives the piece an analog bleed-over quality that is a centerpiece of the album. The informal arrangements allow for a powerfully fluid dynamism and subtle but vivid sonic detail.
