London's Diagonal isn't just any techno label. Instead, we prefer to think of them as broadly circulating around the industrial sphere, and whether it's guitars or synthesizers at the artist's disposal, the end result is always quality. This time, for instance, its psych-doom band The Skull Defekts who drop an LP on the imprint. Briefly, the band consists of Joachim Nordwall, Jean-Louis Huhta, Daniel Higgs, Daniel Fagerstrom and Henrik Rylander, and they waste no time in trashing their way five high-powered tracks. Their sound is circular throughout the whole LP, and it's refreshing to hear given the amount of LP's sounding utterly disconnected these days. The only odd one out is "Holy Drums (dub)", an watery, percussive little deviation with less guitar amid its percussive rolls. Beautiful stuff, dig in.
