Quarter Turns Over a Living Line is the title of electronic duo Raime’s upcoming full-length on Blackest Ever Black. The album drops as a 2xLP (and CD, but I’ve been told that is “uncool” and that most of you guys don’t buy those) on November 19. “Your Cast Will Tire” is our first exposure, and it starts with some spindly string-scraping on a guitar that’s eventually overtaken with a beat that sounds like it came from one of Andy Stott’s 2011 EPs. The strings create an unsettling drone in the treble range, while the heavy weight of the consistent knocking in the lower register drags you to the bottom of some murky lake. Halloween was last week, but for those of you still holding a bag of candy, Raime’s got some negative creep for you.
