"Another impressive American artist – one whose release count must have hit the triple digits by now – is Headboggle. Derek Gedalecia was born in Ohio but currently calls San Francisco home. Shortly after his relocation, he shifted his focus away from a more traditional indie rock format and began delving into the experimental underground, hanging out with the likes of Caroliner. Dude’s a wizard with a modular synth, but takes a sort of kitchen sink approach to his music. If there is anyone who can come close to synthesizing the sounds playing out in my brain, it’s him. The DBA Head-Boggle Int’l tape comes courtesy of the Victoriaville, Quebec-based La Cohu imprint, and features two extended, brain-scrambling pieces of sonic mayhem. The A side is a recording of Gedalecia’s rehearsal for this year’s International Noise Conference. On it, he fires off blasts of squelch from a Moog synth while a scattershot drum machine beat prances around drunkenly. A Blippoo Box is employed to drop a hint of randomness to the proceedings, and there appears to be a harmonica buried somewhere in there. The flip was recorded in 2011 and finds Gedalecia molesting a Serge modular synth augmented with a touch-activated keyboard sequencer, stepping into a parallel universe in the process."
