Lene is the experimental dark-toned electronic sound of Trevor Sias. In another lifetime he ran influential Indie label Music Related, but before that he was a kid with a skateboard and some machines, who made bracing uptempo techno. These days he has returned to the machines, to make a different kind of sound. His new EP “Weight and Steam” feels like floating in deep black water, rippling with fields of gauzy distortion, while the churn of some sinister mechanical presence is never far away. Each track is economical in its development and running time; this is not groovy deejay music, it is something else. Perhaps a way to purge some of that clutter in your mental “closet.” Listen in earphones, or with speakers on loud.
