Following the release of their acclaimed album What One Becomes in June of this year, Sumac return with 'Before You Appear', a limited 12" EP featuring 30 minutes of remixes from UK techno artist Samuel Kerridge, Bleed Turquoise (aka James Ginzburg of Emptyset), noise icon Kevin Drumm and Japanese catastrophic noise-metal group Endon. The results range from impossibly dense and perpetually ascending psych-noise blowouts, to subdued passages of subtly curdled drones punctuated by disembodied vocal excretions. In composing music, Sumac opts for a process of simultaneous construction and dismantlement. Long-form rock based structures are distended to the point of erosion, reiterated in continually alternating sequences, and plied with extra-musical implements of chaos and tonal abstraction. Through the practice of psychophysical exertion and sensorial disorientation the music becomes a tangible projection of the players underlying emotions and spirit. Though stylistically differentiated from the source material, all four tracks of Before You I Appear posses a parallel predilection for combining combustible atmospherics and emotionally penetrative musical maneuvers.
