Ambient, hypnotic and insistently heavy-going

Stating Andrew Blick creates music “unlike anything else” is blasé to the point of insulting. Taking experimental instrumental into a warped realm only he knows Gyratory System constantly teeters on the verge of meltdown. Ambient, hypnotic and insistently heavy-going, there’s a level of focused intensity; of unerring accomplishment and precision, constantly walking a tightrope of total collapse. Urgent and efficient, ‘New Harmony’ is misleadingly militant in its relentlessness, marching to its own electronic heartbeat. It’s Captain Beefheart dabbling with Ableton or a Philharmonic orchestra conducted by Dr. Zeus. Regardless of the outcome, there’s a clear method to the madness.
