“Human Capabilities” is a stunning collection of tracks that range from the blissfully atmospheric to the jarringly heady mechanical. Although it is an undoubtedly heady experiment Not Waving’s Natalazia never sacrifices any of its deep soul.
Inspired partly (according to Natalazia) by classic works like “Pet Sounds”, Husker Du’s “Zen Arcade“ and This Heat’s “Deceit, Human Capabilities” reverberates with the truth of those works without sounding anything like them. If anything, the vibe is more exquisitely Tangerine Dream-y.
This is machine music with a fleshy, bright red beating heart. Evidence of “Human Capabilities”.
