D. Gookin: From Here the Wall of Undoing
Based on the energy D. Gookin exerts during his live shows, I doubt he ever has to go to the gym. This one-man band armed with a drum kit, a laptop, and a looper works himself into a frenzy until you think he might burst. His latest EP, From Here the Wall of Undoing, encapsulates this boundless energy. D experiments with more distortion, resonating synths, and crisp drum beats. The five tracks run the gamut from the melodic "The Spirit Link" to growled lyrics and primal screams on "Mad Mallow". If you like what you hear, catch this technoise live at Café Nine on February 4.
