I’ve heard that Wellington was quite the hub for experimental music in the late 80s and early 90s, and if that’s the case, then I understand why these guys call it home. The All Seeing Hand are a Wellington based experimental band, led by producer Alphabethead. Their sophomore album, Mechatronics, was released in October last year through Muzai. Defying genre stereotyping, this ten-track album takes you on a ride, manipulating the noise spectrum from track to track.
This is possibly one of the strangest records I’ve heard for years. I don’t know what language is being spoken, throatily gargled and screamed throughout, and I like it. It makes me feel like I’ve been trapped inside a post-apocalyptic dream. Your neighbours have turned on you, your morals have been turned inside out in the name of survival, and this is playing on loop in your head.
