Hands In The Dark
OSCILLATION – Monographic LP
Followers in the great tradition of Popul Vuh, Spacemen 3 and Can since 2006, London’s the Oscillation fourth full-length collection of odd vibrations Monographic contains such a blistering stream of distorted, delayed, krauty, shoegazey, droney psychedelic space-rock, it’s a wonder its sound wouldn’t simply melt all the plastic and wax with which it comes in contact.
The project helmed by multi-instrumentalist producer Demian Castellanos, who provides all the guitars, vocals, organ, and bass on Monographic alongside Valentina Magaletti’s drums, truly nailed their aesthetic with this album. It’s hard to disagree with their bio’s claim that this is “the band’s most accomplished and outstanding set of songs to date.” Monographic is a trip, one that does their influences proud.
