• VOIGHT KAMPFF - The Din Of Dying Youth LP
Voight-Kampff’s new 12″ EP, “The Din of Dying Youth,” was recorded last year but is set to be released on Deranged Records in a few weeks (and in Europe on PTrash Records). The album puts on display the contrast between machine and human that is referred to in the band’s namesake; take, for example, track 4 on the new album, “I Believe in Love” – it announces itself with a clanging, icy drum machine, but is soon awash in balmy bass guitar lines and reverb-treated baritone vocals. The 6-song EP as a whole is a gritty meditation on loss – the loss of innocence that comes with growing older, the loss of lost time, lost loves, losing out to the inevitable process of aging, gradually surrendering to persistent forces of entropy and decline. What’s it all for? “Din of Dying Youth” serves as a weighty treatise on giving up the past for an uncertain future.
