Teargas & Plateglass Black Triage
- Words: Max Herman

- XLR8R Rating: 5/10
With Black Triage, instrumental collective Teargas & Plateglass continues to reach into the darkest depths of electronic-based music. This album sounds like the soundtrack to an imposing sci-fi/horror flick set in 2050–one that is tough to sit through all the way. Teargas & Plateglass are undoubtedly deft with the drum-machine pads and synths–the robust rhythms and sinister melodies of tracks like “Behold the Sea of Ills So Vast” hit pretty hard. The thing is, too many drawn-out silences and an abundance of overall eeriness make this one only appealing to fans of the ultra-overcast.
