Only hardcore people with unusual listening habits will be able to cope with what Yvette offer on their debut "Process". Simple loops on loud clattering drums that are as stoic as the classic Krautrock are thrown into a pot of industrial noises of the most extreme kind and then stirred vigorously. The duo from Brooklyn, NY must be attested that it works consistently and with courage towards extroverted artistic expression. The sometimes already brutal sounds are produced on alienated guitars and synthesizers, whose spectrum ranges from shrill, unbearable whistling to barely audible low frequencies. At least Yvette are able to create clear structures and melodies, sometimes even quite catchy ones. Which is also due to the vocals that radiate a certain post-punk charm. Memories of Throbbing Gristle come to life or live performances of the herbaceous legend Faust. But unfortunately one wishes too often that the noise would soon pass. It does: After 33 minutes the spook is over.
