Voices of Dust is the third and final part in Demdike Stare’s trilogy of albums for 2010. The album opens with an analogue tape drone that seems to suck the light out of whatever environment you might find yourself in, powering up Demdike’s machinery for the bellydance disco assault of Hashshashin Chant that follows. Repository Of Light takes another diversion, this time wading through the gaseous environs that made the MVO trio’s debut album so memorable earlier this year, before Desert Ascetic flips things over for a dusted, relentless assault on the souk
That's probably an exaggeration, the new album from Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty, the third and final in a series of vinyl-only long players released this year, doesn't make as many explicit references to witchcraft and black magic as the duo's 2009 debut, Symbiosis. However, the same eerie, supernatural undercurrents, as well as a fascination with death, decay and well, the darker side of the human psyche, are all present and correct. Opening track "Black Sun" sets the tone perfectly: featuring nothing more than a low end hum, it emits the occasional crackle to let. However, these are only temporary steps out of the (dis)comfort zone and Demdike Stare seem most comfortable when creating uneasy listening soundtracks like "A Tale of Sand" or the death-march dirge of "Viento de Levante. Like a baby with a sixth finger or a bearded lady, Demdike Stare are out on their own, a freakish curiosity for sure, but one that invites inquisitive ears and questioning listeners.
