A 15 track alternative album (54m 25s) — released June 6th 2016 on Avian

Following on from 2014's much lauded long player Linear S Decoded, SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs finds the duo pairing trademark stop motion percussion and hyper tensile synthesis with corrosive sound design on a series of warping, maximalist pieces.

As a complete article, the work is wedded to the Avian aesthetic : monochromatic & wrought with tension. It's powerfully dynamic and thoroughly organic in execution - an unbound, rolling matrix of white noise & wrought iron percussion, replete with disembodied choirs that pan uncomfortably in and out of the sonic hinterland.

Despite dealing with many of the themes that have come to characterise the output of the label : unease & existential paranoia - a sense of loss & isolation; there's a cathartic - almost redemptive energy contained in the blistering waves of distortion that either intermittently burst into focus, or sit boldly at the forefront of the mix.

At moments it comes tantalisingly close to cacophony - crushed delays feed back in on themselves as tracks build, rolling ominously on towards an as yet unidentified point. With SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs, SHXCXCHCXSH offer some of their most powerfully emotive work yet, heady & burning - that deftly communicates the movement from a position of relative safety to absolute, untethered sonic hyperbole
