Fricke’s Picks: The Solo Martin Rev

Les Nymphes (File 13) is the Suicide keysman's seventh solo album and, in its way, more radical than the chant-and-heartbeat music he makes with Vega. On his own, Rev works in colorful widescreen. These 13 instrumental pieces are circular-riff dance music, programmed with surprising flourishes like the grindcore-guitar effect opening "Triton." The record does not have Suicide's stark charge and urban-outlaw ardor, but that trademark pulse is always there.

[From Issue 1065 — November 13, 2008]
