Given the sludgy, otherworldly strangeness of his output, it’s perhaps little surprise that Chicago’s Beau Wanzer has strong relationships with both Russian Torrent Versions and L.I.E.S. This four-track EP of decidedly weird experiments could easily have come out on either of those imprints; instead, it represents a long overdue debut proper for Melvin Oliphant III’s intriguing Nation imprint. Power Outage shows Wanzer at his eccentric best, variously delivering triple-time horror-techno (the moody title track), ghostly ambience (the decidedly lunar “Fabrics”), delay-laden, cymbal-heavy beatscapes (“Lotraf”), and impossible-to-pigeonhole experimental exotica (“Thurston Moog”). The whole thing bristles with in-your-face attitude, as if Wanzer really doesn’t care what listeners think. That makes Power Outage all the more alluring.
