Prurient, 'Time's Arrow EP' (Hydra Head)

Time's Arrow EP
Critical Mass
Release Date: October 25, 2011
Label: Hydra Head

by Joe Gross

This year's Bermuda Drain was the least chaotic album yet from New York noise savant Dominick Fenrow, the brutalist electronics artist doing business as Prurient. Time's Arrow is a worthy coda: Two versions of the pulsing, basement-new-wave title track meditate on the Black Dahlia murder and Martin Amis; "Let's Make a Slave" and "Maskless Face" scream like a demon in your malfunctioning hard drive; and the instrumental "Slavery in the Bahamas" revels in stuttering digital chaos. All told, it's more a polite straight razor down the forearm than a rude shotgun blast to the face.
