Album Review: White Hills - Stolen Stars Left For No One (Thrill Jockey)

7 / 10 Turning on iTunes’ Visualizer setting should really turn the thrumming, tinnitus-inducing white noise, fluid space jams and pummelling riffs of this record into a dense swirling fog of dry ice – only that would properly represent the synapse-frazzling sonic maze Brooklyn’s Dave W and Ego Sensation crank out. Sadly, Visualizer just offers some paltry fireworks, which don’t do justice to the deep and heavy, effects-laden quality of this agreeably lumbering EP at all. Fans of hallucinogen-tweaked Hawkwind, epic Stooges, Loop, Suicide and other cosmic ‘heads’ won’t be disappointed.
