Dave Phillips is a solo artist from Switzerland that plays a mixture of experimental and harsh noise and this is a review of his 2020 album "Post Homo sapiens" which was released by Attentuation Circuit.
Distorted sounding drones start off the album while most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. At time s the music also gets very avant garde and experimental sounding along with some screams also being used briefly which also adds in a touch of black metal.
Home made instruments also take the place of a percussion along with some harsh noises and power electronics also being utilized quite a bit throughout the recording. Throat voices are also utilized at times as well as one track also introducing programmed beats onto the recording and all of the tracks also sound very different from each other, some songs also bring in a good amount of field recordings, pianos and whispered spoken word parts can also be heard briefly.
Dave Phillips plays a musical style that takes experimental, drone, field recordings and harsh noise and mixes them together to create a sound of his own and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Dave Phillips is a very great sounding mixture of experimental, drone, field recordings and harsh noise and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo artist. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Biosemiotics" and "Metamorphosis". 8 out of 10.
