Eigen Risico – Eigen Risico 2

Laputahache and Tartarus have put their hands together to bring you a physical cassette release of the album Eigen Risico 2! The coarse and unabashedly topsy turvy follow up to Eigen Risico 1, the self titled debut album of his visceral and emotive, Groningen based multidisciplinary art project.

Known for putting on riotous performances with cohorts Jesper Vos and Eirik Jahnsen.The album, recorded over a long stretch of time by  Héctor Garcia Martin, represents a marked shift towards capturing the destructive essence of these shows. A collection of eleven vignette-like tracks, the distinctly hallucinogenic lo-fi veneer that has become a hallmark of hache’s work has taken a corrosive turn. Bombastic 808’s tumble on tracks such as Xq Recordar Si Internet Es Pa Siempre  whilst cacophonous swaths of feedback and tape recordings of drums provide a thrilling counterpoint.
These more aggressive turns are juxtaposed by more tender and at times psychedelic outings, such as the space freak out on Feliz E Ignorante (featuring Vos) and the mournful instrumentation on Portados. The tracks are combined into a collage like whole in which the idea of genre is thrown out the window and samples, skits and references (such as on the track Tetsuo de Chunga) create a unique universe of sound showcasing who hache is and how he sees the world.
