Paik Satin Black
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: Strange Attractors
As my friend says, half-horrified half-confused about one drunken coupling, "It was just so naked so fast!" Paik's Satin Black ain't no making out-its post-rock gets naked real fast with the first three of its five long tracks practically leaping out of the gate already at full pitch and staying there throughout the whole duration of this mini-album. Satin Black is full of crashing cymbals, hypnotically droning guitar waves and swarms of feedback, with "Dizzy Stars" being the lone track that mildly teases with its push and pull of volume. Getting down immediately is hot, but maybe a little seduction is hotter?
