INTERNATIONAL HEALTH ADVISORY WARNING From the Drowned in Sound Health Promotion Division (DiSHPD) A new strain of the drone-borne supervirus Gnod may infect roughly 102 people in London, according to a recent study published in the Lancet. Due to its abnormally long latent period, the new strain has been dubbed Infinity Machines. The study, conducted by a team of epidemiologists from the University of Georgia, warned consumers to listen for 'uncontrollable saxophone squalls, industrial-grade throbs, a repetitive Germanic pulse, and tangential voice clips, all of which may last from six minutes to half an hour'.

PopMatters - 90

The first time the word “mammoth” was used as an adjective, it described a 1,234-pound wheel of cheese, an amalgamation of every cow in the town of Chesire, Massachusetts’ milk. Gifted to then-President Thomas Jefferson, Federalists dubbed the gift “mammoth cheese” because of the ancient animals’ bones being recently uncovered in New York state. Obscure history, munchies, and a fumigating-esque repugnance; ah, yes, doesn’t this sound like college all over again? Luckily, for those looking to relive their college years, or for the experimental ambient fan seeking to soundtrack next semester’s fabled dorm-room philosophizing, Scottish outfit GNOD’s latest release Infinity Machines provides plenty of fodder and comes packed with starter topics, free of charge! Perpetual dorm favorite Jacques Derrida once wrote “there is no outside-text”, as in, context is everything.

The Quietus
Their review was very positive

The grand feature length offering that is Infinity Machines comes packaged in an almost anti-psychedelic grey cover, stamped with a black rorschach image that appears to represent a frontal plane dissection of a human brain. Or is it a walnut? Or maybe a cat's arsehole? Like this music, it could really be whatever you make of it. Is the album one sustained, simulated jam session finding the band in an unusually atypical mood? Is it a journey through the cross-wires and bemusing mis-associations of an unhealthy mind? The album features six long tracks in the double digits, and two shorter excursions, plus a colossal, optional 40-minute live bonus recording for pre-orders, so there's some two and a half hours for us to decode what Gnod are up to (and whatever happens, that's more than enough time for a couple of tabs to be in full effect by the album's end).
