A 7 track techno album (52m 34s) — released July 15th 2013 on Avian

Swedish duo SHXCXCHCXSH drop their debut album on Avian, and as a distillation of the duo's sound, STRGTHS is nigh on perfect.

Incorporating elements of IDM, Industrial & Ambient - as well as classic Rave signifiers, not to mention the rolling, deep diving Techno the pair made their name with, the debut LP is a trip. For an outfit shrouded in mystery and set on maintaining a fairly rigid, monochrome visual aesthetic, listeners will find the LP surprisingly playful. Sounds warp and arc, hissing and rolling as though untethered, all the while buoyed by generous, undulating low end. It feels fun, suggesting the Swedish duo might not be quite as serious as the image portrayed.
