LP, 8 Tracks, 50”, Vinyl + Digital, 2009-2011

Lodsb steps the processing up a notch on this release, a no holds barred excursion into digital deconstruction. Disturbing and beautiful in equal parts, this album is not for the casual listener, but is rather an intricate and overwhelming excursion into dense and challenging territory.

Comments & Reviews

Deriving DSP-bound electrical pulses dipped in muddy soil, each augmented slice of high-pitch-low-pitch squelches offers a detailed perspective of how machines can transform into artistic visual-audio platforms. [...] Not only does Lodsb bend, twist, shift and peal layers of digital corruption, he does so with the ease and fury of parallel artistic voyagers such as Funckarma, FMcontrol, Randomform, Richard Devine et al. [...] what remains is a turbulent dose of snips, snaps and crunched compositions keeping your eyes and ears locked-in from start to finish.

Aero, takes the listener through an abstract world of micro sound crunching, glitching and misfiring. No sonic element is left unturned, unwraped or unwarped. Two years in the making, the album is definitely a delight for any DSP junkie, sound designer, or just pure geek.

headphone commute

Les traits de Aero sont grossiers, bigarres et anarchiques. [...] Et pourtant c'est vachement bien. Parce qu'en matiere de collages et de technique pure, Lodsb n'est pas un lapin de six semaines. Sa formation de musicien classique l'a probablement aide. [...] L'ensemble a beau etre taille a la serpe mal affutee, il n'en est pas moins jubilatoire. Avoir quarante idees a la minute [...] Les vrilles retro-futuristes de l'allemand sont ereintantes mais degagent un charme et un aspect ludique certain. [...] On trouve dans les interstices de Aero des residus de diabete et de tetanos. On en redemande, tanpis pour le cholesterol et l'epilepsie.

chroniques electroniques

It is a powerful and masterful piece of work that is orchestral and epic, and holds comparison to deconstructionalist artists like Autechre. [...] The last track Wasp hints that Lodsb is more then capable of creating actual dance music, the last section is sinister analog techno, ala Oliver Huntemann or Stephan Bodzin, at its finest.

Buried Treasure

Multiplied by the post-classical and break-core came out of nowhere a talent of abstract art similar to Mouse on Mars. [...] I do not know how to describe [the music] more than 10 minutes from the opening, I just simply return to repeated listening [...] The Gate Fold is like a tailored jacket, so very good it is [...] And to be brutally honest, I'd rather stay lost for words while still in front of this music.


Quasiment inconnu, l'artiste vient de produire une galette dont le foutraque n'a d'egal que le genie. On ne saurait trop vous conseiller que d'ecouter cette merveille, entre IDM decerebre et breakcore a deconseiller aux adolescents pour qui le mot "concept" fait mal a la tete.
