Dalek- Gutter Tactics LP Review (6.8/10) I came across Dalek by accident but I’m glad I did. This latest album utilizes many of the tactics employed on earlier work. The title this time round is apt, as this genre mashing work has a scratchy lo-fi yet weighty, submerged quality. The overlapping noises, signals and sounds build up ala GSYBE! but with a drum beat. It appears gloomy, noisy and unfocussed and you probably have to be in ‘the mood’ to listen to it but I find it perfect at times.Some of the tracks do get very sludgy and doom like, but it just about avoids being one long abstract blur. If you appreciate industrial music, drone, post-rock and hip hop, you are possibly in a very small minority but I think you will get this. If you want to try something different and are fairly adventurous in your musical taste there are far worse things you could be listening to.Nobody else seems to be doing this sort of work musically at the moment and they should be applauded as originators at the very least.
