Discordance has no right to be this melodic. Reeks of the existential horror of societal collapse but with martial earworms. A thumping soundtrack for a re-read of Riddley Walker.
Favorite track: The Dividing Bell.
New from Avon Terror Corps’ is the first full-length mission statement from Jackson Veil Panther: a distorted mess of warped polyrythms, atonal stabs, stretched clarinet and steppas beatdown.
JVP has previously appeared on the crew-label’s compilations as well as the Bokeh Versions' All Stars 2020 release.
These seven tracks - made in 2018/19 - see JVP develop on the punkish ferocity of his ATC-comp track ‘RAT’ and delve further into mutant-rhythms and warped-percussion, whilst expanding into territories of wonky melody and abstract vocals.
A snapshot of a learning curve in its embryonic stages, Jackson Veil Panther tracks were never originally intended for public consumption. You only hear them as part of Jackson's research and development and the ongoing experiment that is Avon Terror Corps.
