PZA – CLOUDS

Recommendation: ☹ CLOUDS isn’t the usual for Acid Medical. PZA is known for vaportrap – and a lot of it – whereas Acid Medical is known for drone music and ADD-glitchasms. Therefore, CLOUDS is only somewhat an odd duck among releases such as the hundred-minute-plus killkore and the soporific animal crossing. The same PZA pieces1 are here with little change […]

Following the same blueprint of str grl †, slaves is a thirty-minute long drone track that relishes in the slow burn. slaves is the least abrasive album […]

Jin – Jin

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Released at the tail end of 2016, the eponymous album by Jin represents the darker side of Acid Medical. Not that the kidcore label was anything amiable – its very nature is Stepford mania – but Jin represents the opposite of the excess that’s present in thunder carnival and Total Destruction. Along with Walled City, this six-track EP […]
