Blanck Mass – “Silent Treatment”

Benjamin John Power is one half of the great electronic noise duo Fuck Buttons, and he also makes great music on his own under the name Blanck Mass. “Please,” the first song we heard from his upcoming album World Eater, cracked our 5 Best Songs Of The Week list when it came out last month. Now he’s shared a second, and it’s just as good. “Silent Treatment” is another 8-minute beast of a track that’s both beautiful and punishing, building choral samples and sheets of static into an overwhelming, transcendent experience. It’s about “the problems that arise when we don’t communicate,” Power explains in a press release. “We often grow apart when we don’t understand each other. Being left in the dark can lead to fear.” Listen.

World Eater is out 3/10 via Sacred Bones. Pre-order it here.
