Sunk Heaven is the solo project of Austin Sley-Julian (also of the band Sediment Club) where he coaxes harsh soundscapes and pulsing cyberpunk blues out of salvaged and hand-built gear. On this release, it actually sounds at times like Austin's gear and maybe the speakers are being destroyed by the sounds. You've heard of "dungeon synth" but if there was an actual dungeon for synthesizers, this is what it might sound like.

Confident this will be my album of the year. Chilling, funky, mind-expanding, confrontational, soulful, danceable, terrifying. It reminds me, bizarrely, of MSP's 'The Holy Bible'. Like THB it doesn't shy away from the filth and evil of history. Unlike THB it's completely in earnest. Put it on headphones, listen to it all, don't look away, be educated, this is our world.
