After a prolific run on small tape labels like Night People, Arbor, Agents of Chaos, etc, Jeff Witscher has blown the fuck up with his Rene Hell project. Last year’s “Porcelain Opera” graced a ton of year-end lists, and with good reason. Witscher has become a consistently awe-inspiring master of modern synthesizer music. He’s done plenty of drone and noise in the past, but “The Terminal Symphony” is decidedly next-level, easily breaking free of genres and eclipsing almost any contemporaries. Sure, it references the past, but it’s also one of the freshest, most exciting records we’ve heard this year. Type, you’ve done it again. You can get the LP (which includes a bonus CD) in Europe at Boomkat, otherwise grab in the US from Experimedia.
