A1 - Knukke
A2 - Skarper / Apprehe
A3 - Sumer Love
B1 - Single-Use Earth

Beginning the 9th LP from Whirling Hall Of Knives, Knukke's title track opens with strands of shifting drum patterns from long-time WHOK collaborator Bryan O'Connell - unsettlingly crude edits and loops of which overlap and weave over ominous cooing and what sounds like a robotic feline in distress.

The opening screeching and grinding of Skarper/Apprehe develops into a passage of the most bleak and despairingly gnarled electro, which in turn gets swallowed by yet another amorphous and distorted migraine.

Sumer Love is a more bliss-ridden meditation - a brief respite from the chaos that has passed and a welcome pause before the total collapse to come. Celestial vocal washes struggle to break out from behind an arid rhythmic throb.

Side B brings the side-long Single-Use Earth - the first half of which erupts into a bleak, monotonous, extended cacophony that eventually gives way to some fluttering, time-stretched memories, bobbing on a series of polluted waves lapping against the radioactive shore.
