Blanck Mass is Benjamin John Power’s side-project that he focuses on when he’s not focusing on Fuck Buttons. For those of you not familiar, Fuck Buttons have been a favorite of mine and I’d consider them a Mitchfork.com Required ListenTM. World Eater is Power’s third LP under the alias and, by many measures, is already his best. This album goes everywhere, featuring moments that sound like something that would be on pop-radio to being full on harsh noise. Overall, it’s certainly a more accessible version of Fuck Buttons. In fact, Lorde recently featured the single “Please” on a playlist that she made for the New York Times. This album comes from the ever-reliable Sacred Bones, which I would argue is the most eclectic, yet most on point record label out there.
