Strange Records for Strange Times-
Bomis Prendin: Phantom Limb (10" flexi-disc)--Artifacts A/y5. Bomis Prendin's first 10-inch flexi-disc, Test, was a delightful surprise. Phantom Limb continues in more or less the same mode: concise ideas and sounds, with and without vocals, flowing together in an ingenious and cohesive schematic design. It's not so far from the Residents or the recent Dome LP from Wire's G. Lewis and B.C. Gilbert. Over the course of Phantom Limb's 20-odd minutes, impersonal hums and howls evolve into humanistic sound. Bomis Prendin will occasionally tease with snatches of pop or free-form jazz, but they don't stray far from a fantastic mix of aural beauty and mechanical nightmare.
