Terminal 11 Fractured Sunshine
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Hymen
It's sometimes hard to distinguish one artist from the next in the Ant Zen/Hymen stable. Not so Terminal 11. Fractured Sunshine takes the Arizonan's obsession with meticulous detail to a miraculous extreme, creating a sort of OCD breakcore album-it's composed completely out of very clean sounds but still manages to convey wild-eyed mania. His weirdly flat drums constantly fluctuate against strange samples, the whole thing feeling compressed and yet far-reaching at the same time. It's not hard to see how Terminal 11 has earned undying praise from folks like Jason Forrest, and while the album's about as far from "groovy" as you can get, you might end up finding it loveable.
