Yyed “Two Reflections in Parallel”

I love releases where I hear countless recognizable sounds put together and manipulated in ways I can’t begin to process. Combining these elements gives off a disjointed familiarity that is unsettling yet cathartic. Yyed’s Two Reflections in Parallel is disorienting in the best way, like being trapped inside a haunted, decaying labyrinth where you have chains tied around your ankles and are dragging them fruitlessly through the mud. I absolutely love it. Fizzing static hovers above paranoid soundscapes on “Ridges Protruding From a Surface,” ghosts fighting to stay airborne against the odds. I have listened to this piece a dozen times in the past two weeks and I think it’s infected me at this point, like I stepped on a rusty nail. I am here for it.
