Basic Glitches är sjätte albumet med elektroduon Eleventyseven fån North Carolina. Skivan fokuserar mycket på hur religion utnyttjar människor, men även en del om slitet med att vara oberoende artist.
Just låten Birthrite anspelar på det hat som duon fått utstå från kristna.
“There is high price for being honest with yourself. Sometimes doing the right thing isn’t met with reward.When our band first started out, we were associated with a lot of religious acts. By our our fourth record we were speaking out against the hypocrisy we were seeing in Protestant America. When we failed to mirror the beliefs and religious leanings of others, we were suddenly viewed as outsiders and morally inferior. Birthrite is a response to the emails we got from some zealous fans who seemed to hate us for not having a Christian agenda. It was an exercise in auditing all of the toxic beliefs we were given in our childhood, that ultimately grew into anxiety as adults.
The track itself is made almost entirely on a Sequential Rev 2 and a Moog Subphatty except for the drum samples. The idea was to place a lot of emotional angst into a controlled and hyper chromatic soundscape. This is one of my favorite tracks on the record because it ended up with this really glittery gloom about it that I really resonate with.”
Resultatet är skönt melodiskt i sin elektroniska produktion och nästan lite suggestiv i stilen, vilket jag uppskattade. Eleventyseven har förresten även skrivit temalåten till Netflix-serien Terrace House.
