Cassette Review: Albert Wolski "Glitch"

[$5 //]

Albert Wolski may smomehow think this music is a glitch but it is rather different from that genre on the whole.   Through some haunted synth whirrs the first side (which is also the first song as this is a C10 cassingle) we enter high pitched bits into an eventual boiler room scene.

On the flip side we have the sound that Darth Vader's ship makes in the Atari 2600 game Return of the Jedi (That really needs a shorter description) and then some lasers come in as well, setting the tone for the overall ambient synth drone.

The only thing that does slightly resemble a glitch in this- and I'm not sure if it was intended or not- is that on Side B (and not Side A) the cassette itself seems to be manipulated as it sort of makes this clicking noise.   I feel like if the cassette shell was damaged it would have happened on both sides but it mostly just reminds me of when Andy Kaufman wanted to mess with the tracking on his network special to confuse viewers.
