Tonight celebrates the release of a split 7-inch from Hot Victory and Vice Device. Somehow, Hot Victory has managed to cram an entire 48-minute-long album's worth of material into their side of the split. Well, sort of: The percussive group, two drummers with a third member on electronics, has put the relatively succinct, four-minute "Zenith" onto the actual vinyl, and it's a tropically tinged piece of retro-futuristic cyberpunk. The remaining music is available via the now-customary download card, and along with "Zenith," it makes up the "Triangulum Australe (Tablets I-V)" suite, a collection of lengthy and mesmerizing abstractions that evolve from synth drones into full-out, apocalyptic drum breakdowns. The recording's length and ambition suits Hot Victory, who has moved well beyond the novelty of their unconventional instrumentation into developing strange and admirable sonic sculptures. Vice Device, meanwhile, offer an ominous slice of robotic synth work, motored by aggressive bass and choppy eighth notes on analog synth. NED LANNAMANN
