Boy Harsher – Yr Body Is Nothing (2016)

I went through a phase where I was super into this duo, but I kinda let that obsession fall to the wayside. Returning to Yr Body Is Nothing (the title reminds me of Swans, “Yr Property” etc) was long, long overdue then. As soon as this record starts thumping out of the speakers I’m wondering to myself why it is I let listening to this pair slide in the first place.

This album is fantastic. I love the mix of nostalgiac tape wobble, an almost VHS treacle-like vibe to the synthesizers used here, all the while the tunes almost fall into the whole trance-inducing body techno movement, but not quite so. Instead, Yr Body… sits somewhere in between in the visceral darkened margins of each genre. I suppose one could call it darkwave, but it almost feels like more than that. Either way, I don’t think there’s a single bad song on this album, and I highly recommend it to fans of dark electronic music.
