Introducing Nick Klein, making his way to the European audience by means of a boisterous and deafening five-track 12-inch on the label. Live recorded last year behind the closed doors of his lair back in Brooklyn, NY following several cassette efforts released on a clutch of discreet tape labels — and most notably Boston’s Private Archive — Failed Devotee comes as Klein’s first vinyl release and shows the American producer (also a dashing country music aficionado) at his finest. Invoking whirring synth operations, the New Yorker manages to assemble and hold together fierce electronic arrangements with apparent ease. Making much of his ability to improvise acute muscular narratives over the fetid, slowed and throwed techno meanderings to which he alone seems to know the exact formula. Compelling industrial-tinged maneuvers, hard-boiled analog rhythms and heavy infectious kicks that prompt primal action to the ‘floor.
