Press Reviews for A U R O R A

The latest offering from the Iceland based noise maven was not an album to make friends with; no surprise, given that previous releases have sounded like a slow-motion, dystopian, robotic mugging. This is a man, lest we forget, who last year composed an opera based on Iain Banks’ seminal celebration of darkness and debasement The Wasp Factory. But Ben Frost is respected by the best in the business: Brian Eno has anointed him, the Boomkat oddballs adore him, he’s contributed on contemporary classics like Tim Hecker’s Ravedeath, 1972 and Swans’ The Seer. And with the brutalist yet euphoric aesthetic of A U R O R A, he may have made his most definitive document yet. If you’ve not yet let Ben Frost into your life, you should – because this is rich and rewarding electronic shamanism.
