Former Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn has been relentlessly making noise since 1978. His cleverly named project takes inspiration from electronic-music star Skrillex’s cartoonishly paced machinery eruptions but also honors Ginn's punk-rock youth. These nine long instrumentals begin like Black Sabbath scoring a Godzilla movie, then add quavering theremin solos and layered synths that sound like insect attacks. The drum programming is stuck in the Soft Cell era, but Ginn puts repetition to good use; at nearly 11 minutes, "Eavesdrop" is trance-y like a mantra.
