Label: Not Not Fun
"Economical" is right: With just two quavering synth tones and a few distant, rattling drums, Brian Pyle is capable of striking fear deep in your bones. In that sense, he's not so different from the makers of low-budget horror flicks, so it makes sense that the cover of 2010's Psychical has B-movie written all over it. There's nothing kitschy about the music, though. Weaving together microtonal drones, shredded vocal samples and thrumming tribal percussion, it could easily be mistaken for some cassette-only industrial release from the early '80s, as thrilling as it is chilling.
