Review + Download – Nervous Sex – Creep Sea (Self-Released, 2009)
Posted on October 20, 2009 by admin
“Creep Sea” by Philadelphia PA duo Nervous Sex is a collection of seemingly largely improvised pieces that combine samples, screamed vocals/shouting and feature little to no musical structure, for the most part. I can hardly imagine anyone who will be able to sit through a whole record like this one, but its fairly intense nonetheless and brings to mind 80s bands like Whitehouse.
Final/title track is a bit of an exception to the rule – with its tribal/ambient atmosphere it at least breaks away from the formula. There’s also plenty of shouting/screaming on it, but its treated and sounds truly horrific (in a good way).
“Creep Sea” might be a good way to clean out the room and while almost entirely unlistenable, there’s still hints that the band might progress further (no need for cellos or verse-chorus-verse, but a little bit of move away from random noise wouldn’t hurt either).
