il senno: The beautiful, throbbing chaos of new Carter Tutti Void
il senno is our feature where we look back at stuff from the near past that we either missed or liked and didn’t get a chance to cover. Better late than never, right?
For those who might not know, Carter Tutti Void is the industrial supergroup featuring Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti of Throbbing Gristle and Nik Colk Void of Factory Floor. They have released music together previously — a live album from 2012 called Transverse— but in September the trio released their first official studio album. f (x) is a monster of a LP, which you can sample above via “f=(2.6.2),” which highlights the churning, dark, propulsive results of the group’s recording session. The whole album is a monster, with the highlight being the non-vinyl track “f = (2.2).” Even if it was created by artists without the pedigree of the those who are twisting knobs and creating feedback by smacking drum sticks again guitar strings, this would be a knockout album. The fact that it involves Throbbing Gristle alum only makes it cooler.
