Citalopram Shunyata, a further project by Scatmother mastermind Hagen Verkhaner, unleashes another full-length album entitled "Moist Nobility". Since its first releases back in 2018 (although there had been finished material and focussed experimentation long before that), Citalopram Shunyata has been an insider tip among fans of Harsh Noise of the deep and more European ilk, conjuring up feelings of similarity towards acts like Treriksröset, Sewer Election and Vomir. Creative but always natural and hands-on analogue modulation meets vintage pornography and semi-classy Sleaze.
"Moist Nobility" stays true to the virtues that made the recent releases like the debut full-length "Vanilla Bloodshame" or the various splits with artists like Rotat or Vomir appreciated new entries in the international Noise Landscape, but marks yet another step in evolution for this unique project. There is of course the analogue blast and ripping Feedback that the maniacs have come to appreciate but also even more reliance of detail and finesse in layering the respective elements to form a full experience of analogue noise that finds the perfect sweet spot between filthy murk and nowadays dynamics.
Clearly, Citalopram Shunyata's "Moist Nobility" comes highly recommended to those who appreciate rugged but skilled harsh Sound Art with a sinister but erotically playful undertone. Verkhaner demonstrates that this project is not merely a reproduction of Scatmother but a fresh and well fleshed-out project that can easily survive on its own. Do not miss!
