Belgian noise experimentalists Thot went on a scavenger hunt for the off-beat sounds on their new EP The Fall of the Water Towers, six slow tracks with found sounds, eerie keyboards, gentle piano and a dry acoustic guitar. It's a far cry from their previous louder output, but they have kept the ambient post-rock atmosphere. Most tracks are instrumentals, although special guest Colin H van Eeckhout delivers a great spoken word vocal on Grueenn.
Pastoral, but with danger lurking in the shadows, this EP will be welcomed by fans of Can, Throbbing Gristle and Sonic Youth.
