My first exposure to REDROT was their self titled release last year, which I loved. Since then I've snagged a couple of also excellent older recordings, but I think On Drowning might be the most impressive statement from this long running and prolific machine. Powerful electronics mingle with heavy dance beats and gratuitous noise, hints of Wax Trax-era CONTROLLED BLEEDING suffocating on a fog of sound. "sekrets KILL ME sekrets" is the burner for sure, but check the synths on the title track and feel the seemingly erratic beats on "The Disclaimer" before you close the book here. Ryan Oppermann has outdone himself here.
