Considering the title, I don’t believe it would be presumptuous to call the newest album from The Electric Nature, Michael Potter’s experimental group, apocalyptic. Old World Must Die is a lurchingly organic album that incorporates field recordings, found sounds, what sounds like contact microphones being drug through mud, and, of course, the musical talents of John Kiran Fernandes and Sunwatchers’ Jeff Tobias. They both wail anxiously on their respective instruments throughout the pieces, which transition startlingly from free noise to rock to ambient soundscapes of doom. The Electric Nature is kicking off its album tour with a set at Bolo Bolo featuring Vile Body, Marcel Sletten and Magic Tuber Stringband.
