Blanck Mass (Benjamin John Power of Fuck Buttons) – “Land Disasters”

Benjamin John Power, one half of blissed-out noisemakers Fuck Buttons, recently announced he’d be releasing a solo album under the moniker, Blanck Mass.  In a press release, Power stated “I do like the fact that this album represents a pretty clear image of myself, that which I am aware of and that which might be controlled by some other type of subconscious guidance… Soundtracking nature documentaries would work out pretty well for me.”  “Land Disasters” is unmistakably the work of a Fuck Buttoner, but it also finds Power veering into Oneohtrix Point Never’s territory.  The dense, static soundscapes of Street Horrrsing have gotten smoothed into something a bit more tranquil: the synths’ glacial chord changes are bathed in heavenly white noise that feels boundless, warm and utterly entrancing.

Blanck Mass is due 6/21 via Rock Action.
