Kauf – A Ruin
After spending 2 years together, he can’t extract a positive -the mournful climax repeatedlydeclaring, “You won’t last,” over a noisy bed of arpeggios and swirling chords.
‘A Ruin’,the second release from Kauf’s forthcoming LP Regrowth,is the clear-eyed view of a distant, failed romance. A winding two-minute intro of legato bass guitar, stuttery rhythms and narcotic, detuned synths sets the scene for that crystallization of imminent demise. The facade has withered with time, revealing an impossibly feeble structure beneath.
