This is the first time I’ve encountered Nullkommajosefh, a German dark ambient artist who floats around low-frequency domains to create his isolationist soundscapes. This 3-inch contains two tracks – “Panacea” is a well-assembled and operational if rather calm meeting between distantly Jackmanesque metallic entities (not to mention the circular flanging harmonics typical of Paul Bradley/Twenty Hertz or Colin Potter), while “Peninsula” could be described as Pink Floyd opening up live at Pompeii without noticing Vesuvius has silently restarted its activity. Everything remains looped ad infinitum while concrete reality is inexorably lost, becoming a mass of ashes in a desolate sunset.
