With two lengthy tracks on each side, Irvine dips knotty percussion and dissonant synth smears into a bath of haunted FX. Macabre artists like Shackleton and Demdike Stare are obvious reference points, but both tracks hold their own against such comparisons. "Prism Split (A Scrying Song)" is a weightless shuffle of polyrhythms that practically begs to be mixed with a steady kick pattern. On the flip, the queasy title cut employs skittish snares, sub rumbles and Morse-like tones for more DJ-friendly material, though there's little that's straightforward about it. Irvine remains true to his aesthetic across Reunion Of Two Bodies while revealing hitherto unseen dark corners.
A 50-minute bonus CD called Terms Of Propaganda is also included with the vinyl package. The disc is a seamless mix of original music that further explores Irvine's single-minded soundscapes. It feels like a take-home version of an exploratory, sample-heavy live set, which can be both engrossing and self-indulgent. Propaganda is best heard as an extended companion piece to the more balanced Reunion, and not a full-length statement from this talented producer.
