A drone whines in the distance; HOROSCOPE jettisons a new 5-track LP, Misogyny Stone. It has prescient timing: here we sit at the abyss of masculine power. Originally from Miami Florida but living in New York for over a decade, RENE J NUNEZ-CABRERA produces raw sonic compositions indebted to the visceral experience of performance. This LP, his second for Wharf Cat Records, expands his palette of sound and exhibits the artist’s range in 5 distinct pieces: from paranoid, buzzing headscapes, to meditative, industrial rhythms. Washes and other gestures of contemporary noise abound, but the ultimate descriptor for Nunez’ penchant is mood. The title track contains Nunez’ version of a deep club jam, intertwining light and dark, low and high, with KATHRYN UNDORFER's spoken word sitting right in the middle, sonically spotlighted. “Narcissist Vague” has a religious breadth despite its relatively short existence; while “Azebache Necklace Bought to Protect My Daughter” is a snare-pegged story of delivering a totem; “New Piece (for Christian Mirande)” starts creepily with an organ’s lament, before Nunez’s distorted, layered vocals build into a desperate chorus of screams. Horoscope’s sound is embedded in the struggles of personhood. Through modular manipulations and his acute utilization of pedals and tape loops, Nunez disassembles and reconstructs the dynamics of gender relations: look into the misogyny stone; it is opaque and bleak.
