Quantum Eraser is Anders Covert, formerly of Seattle psych noise duo Wehrwolve. He recently released Time Doesn't Exist a somewhat genre bending release that contains three songs.
“T3MP0R41 F33db4CK” is the opening track and begins with an arpeggiated synth that sounds just about perfect for a sci-fi movie like Blade Runner. Once the percussion comes in, it gives the music an Industrial vibe but it rather quickly starts to mutate into a loose jazz beat. As the song progresses it definitely has a futuristic, neo-cyberpunk type quality that feels psychedelic and hyperreal. The vocals don’t quite feel like a lead. It seemed to be more like another elements adding to the psychedelic swirl. The band Fuck Buttons came to mind.
“Psilosibhansthal” is a different flavor with a distinct heavy hip-hop beat. White noise tears from the seams and crooning Thom Yorke-esque style falsetto comes into the equation. The lyrics are ambiguous and seem to paint the picture of absurdity in a David Lynch kind of way.
Covert sings, “The streets aren't paved with gold / It ain't milk or honey / The American Dream never existed / Mathematics and printed circuit boards / Geometry of unconscious eyes.”
“Holographic Time Travelers” is an experimental and dissonant song. It’s a bit of music overload even with a sober mind. The vocals melodies are catchy in their way even though they are juxtaposed against the music itself.
My only concern with this type of music is in general it sometimes feels difficult to connect with concrete human emotions like sadness, nostalgia, hope, etc. It digs a little deeper into the DNA of time and space where reality can seem disconnected and alien instead of warm and holistic.
Suffice it to say if you can appreciate more experimental acts like Oneohtrix Point Never to Acid Mothers Temple you will want to give this a whirl.
