UK’s Hanetration is a manipulator of ashy gray glitch. The music from his new Torn Heat EP, which is a free follow-up to his Tenth Oar EP, is fascinating, listenable, and a kind of approachable soundtrack to the wasteland. As a heady brew of drone synths that crest over and around amorphous beats & static, we feel (surprisingly) at ease in the tension of his music. Each of the four compositions are careful not to divulge too many secrets or push us over the edge. “Splinter” is a piece of music that makes one feel off balance, in a good way. The texturized backwards whooshing of the beat might cause seasickness if we weren’t squatting in a bombed out apocalypse former apartment building. We are at the mercy of the elements. These are dangerous times, but with a little luck we might just find a quiet place to start a new life.
