Press Reviews for BY THE THROAT

Ben Frost has emerged as one of the truly unique voices in the experimental electronica world in the past decade. And while many of his peers on the fringes have slowly succumbed to popular opinion and drifted towards the "accessible", the "easy listening", the "mainstream", Mr. Frost's latest seems to be a direct critique of this splintering of the field; all things considered, By the Throat endorses a Call of the Wild type abandonment of popular culture and Mr. Frost would certainly be tickled at the idea that this album was created by a musician who had given up his home to live with a pack of wolves. What results is an album as visceral as the title and imagery would imply. It is an unsettling, jarring album, but even through the density of ideas crammed into every track and the purposefully challenging compositions, the listener still gets the sense that they're listening to the work of a master. Highly recommended.
