Herukrat recently released “Anna Karina”, self-described as “ an exploration of an archetype of womanhood, themed around Anna Karina’s roles in Godard’s films from ‘60 - '67." I’m not sure how many womanly archetypes show through the music, but the noise is brutal, consisting of an immense, unrelenting wall, pierced only by vicious stabs of screaming feedback. It’s a bold statement, and an absorbing, cathartic listen. The piece consists of two sides, Side A (above) and Side B, both of which form a cohesive, brain-scraping whole.
"Anna Karina” is available on cassette via underground label SVN OKKLT, or as a free download from Herukrat’s bandcamp page.
