William Levy: Popular Teen Shot in Face By First Love (slowscan) despite it being a “poetry” record I think that this would have great appeal among those who frequent this forum. the album is composed of poetry by William Levy (of the euro sex magazine ‘Suck’) and various collaborators on electronics or reading the poems for him. I didn’t know what I was getting into when I bought this and must say it was not at all what I expected, the album is full of throbbing industrial style electronics and disturbing themes of the apocalypse, as well as some regarding sexual acts. The tracks are made up of edits of larger pieces but it still holds up well as an album and flows nicely into each other. The jacket is full of extensive information as well as urls of where the complete pieces can be found. One of my favorites of 2016. The closer of his moniker Doo-Wop ends the record in an unexpected tone that will make you want to flip the record and listen again.

Ha, good to read the review of the LP, and on a site for industrial music no less. It takes a huge pile of sticks of dynamite to blow these guys’ brains and apparently this LP did the job. I love that LP; it’s an absolutely beautiful release.
