In Hindu scripture, the lingam is the beginning-less and endless cosmic pillar, symbolizing the infinite nature of Shiva, and such infinity can be sensed in Download’s latest album. Entitled LingAM, the duo of cEvin Key and Phil Western use their impressive repertoire of skills, synthesizers and sequencers to create a transcendent work of experimental electronica. Analog squelches and percussive grooves blend seamlessly with elements of trance, noise, IDM, and post-industrial to create a beat driven epic. Centered, as with all Download releases, around a pillar of percussion and rhythm, LingAM stands as an enchanting sonic expression.
