Blurb: Bashed Nursling’s debut full-length is a brutally aimless and oppressive blend of static, noise, and punishing beats.

 

Bashed Nursling is a hard, aggressive experimental band from Hungary that recently released their debut full-length, Every Sunday Morning Kills Us, on the Portuguese net label Enough Records. The music presented on this record is frequently abrasive, hammering, and punishing. Typical for an album produced in this vein, the music lacks any vocal or lyrical content and relies completely on its aural experiments to entice the listener.

Comparable in form and style to earlier Terrorfakt and Ah Cama-Sotz, Every Sunday Morning Kills Us is as frantic and disjointed as it is fraying upon the nervous system. “Decaying Mental Theories” is a 12-minute exercise is droning, faceless feedback, and literally nothing else. “Mickey Did Shroomies” is a bit more typical of the project’s sound, a five-minute cut of random percussive beats, shrieks, static, and haunting, eerie melodies.

Toward the end of the album, we reach “Dawn is Coming,” a fast-paced dance-influenced track that largely leaves behind the noise and creates a track that almost exudes a commercial appeal. The album finishes off with the track “Last Five Pulse” continuing to move further away from the power noise pigeonhole, including guitar in a slower, more directed track. Unfortunately, the mixing on the record is a little too muddled and frequently all of the layers of sound and noise and racket blur together, making a loud, dissonant record even more so.

On the whole, Every Sunday Morning Kills Us could easily find a place in the collection of anyone who’s looking for more random, drug-induced electronic music experiments. As for the rest of us, skip it. There’s nothing here that hasn’t been crafted before – and better – by someone else.
