Since the 1990s, band name punctuation has grown increasingly peculiar. Nowadays, monikers are enhanced by exclamation points (Against Me!), question marks (Why?), periods (fun.), and parentheses (Sunn O)))). BEAK> — an experimental electronica three-piece from Bristol, England, that features Portishead's Geoff Barrow — pushes a fresh symbol into the game, which it has since abused by titling its second album >>. The album is as captivating as BEAK>'s stylization techniques are infuriating, which is to say a whole lot. Outdated electronic equipment is tortured for its notes, voices howl in the distance, and minimalist compositions feel unrelentingly long. The sum leaves behind traces of a foggy, gray hell populated only by high-frequency squeals and your worst anxieties. Kubrick could have worked magic with these sounds.
