Description

Nate Young - Regression

Detroit based Nate Young formed Wolf Eyes as a solo project a bit over ten years ago, probably right after he left Nautical Almenac. He was soon joined by Aaron Dilloway in '98 and John Olson in 2000. Dilloway dissapeared to Nepal and was replaced by Hair Police beast Mike
Connely.

Enough of the Wolf Eyes history lesson, we are now at 2009 and Young is releasing one of his strongest works ever, the deep and impressive "Regression" solo album on iDEAL! Analog synths, tape delays, loops -
presented in a restrained, relaxed and controlled way. This makes the music even more sick and dark than the WE sound. I guess Young was inspired by vintage horror movie soundtracks, 70's ambient synth stuff and intoxication. These things comes to my mind anyways. Nate Young is here proving that he is covering a wide range of experimental music and that he is no doubt one of the few masterminds in the rougher parts of electronic music. iDEAL is highly recommending this to anyone claiming to be interested in synth and tape music.

Reviews

Wolf Eyes founding member Nate Young has taken the noise levels down several notches for this new solo outing, although the air of implicit, floating darkness cast over the whole affair is very much within his established oeuvre. You could neither classify Regression as a noise record or a death ambient record, instead the analog synth dissections and tape treatments more closely reference library music, horror soundtracks, or in its more austere moments, early electronic music. 'Trapped' offers little of the claustrophobia suggested by its title, although the continual woody knocking sounds and filthy oscillations do engender a sense of dread - speaking of which, 'Dread' happens to be the title of the next piece, whose creepy intervals and '70s sound designs bring to mind the Desmond Briscoe soundtrack to Nigel Kneale's The Stone Tape. 'Under The Skin' returns to the more esoteric, intangible sound designs that characterised the album's opening, writhing around in a spluttering, tactile fashion that's at once sonically rather beautiful but deeply sinister, modulating through grisly synthesizer gestures whilst more textural, percussive sounds flood through dub-style tape delays. Regression is an outstanding album, proving to be more delicate than a Wolf Eyes full-length has ever been, yet it's able to match the group's sonic gravitas - and their uncanny ability to make the extremes of music sound so incredibly seductive.
