Boy Harsher "Pain II" 12"
"For nearly seven riveting minutes Jae Matthews' moans—which echo the existential unease of young Nick Cave or Siouxsie Sioux—throw themselves against the song's thick synth pulse like waves upon jagged rock. Unlike many musicians roaming the zones between industrial, darkwave and minimal wave, Boy Harsher don't fetishize the robotic—just the opposite. They revel in nervous humanity, which makes the music sweaty and unpredictable." - Resident Advisor
