Spiritual Malware

Lockbox


Spiritual Malware is the latest release on Primordial Void from label veteran Lockbox (the alias of multidisciplinary artist Jesse Briata). It’s his biggest release on the label thus far, spanning 22-tracks across just about every genre you can think of.

It’s difficult to break down this album because there’s just so much going on. It definitely leans towards the more experimental side but still retains it’s emotive elements, taking you on a journey through pounding bass, skittish IDM melodies, surreal post-punk electronica and deep futuristic jungle. There’s so much to discover across this album with each track surprising you in one way or another.

It’s like walking through an electronic version of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory and being in awe of each room you walk into. Each track is something completely novel and continues to give you more of an incentive to keep exploring further. There really are no limits to this album; it really pushes the boundaries with all types of sounds, textures and frequencies. There’s not much more I can really say other than the fact you really need to listen to this album.
