CRITIC REVIEWS

Resident Advisor

Ominous is an overused word when writing about frightening experimental music, but Purge expresses the feeling in its entirety: the dread of waiting for the inevitable, the horror of it coming, and, perhaps scarier still, the anxiety of what might be left after it's gone.

The tempestuous debut by producer and vocalist Felicia Chen is an emotionally tense album that whips between violent outbursts and quiet pockets of respite.

PURGE by Dis Fig is a sonic guerrilla surprise attack on the most fragile parts of the human psyche.

This album euphorically sinister. Usually subtle and unexpected in it's relentlessness, PURGE guides the listener through a shallow hallway before grabbing you by the throat and pulling you into a dark room, where unspeakable things happen. Even in the album's most quiet parts, such as Watering, there is a sense of anticipation that keeps you gripped.

Okay

It's very intriguing, yet kind of mismatched at some points. Like from going from The Hermit to Purge. I feel like the transition is off. Other than a couple boring sections, I'm left somewhat satisfied, just wanting a little more, you know?

Fuck this was solid all throughout. She reminds me highly of Pharmakon on this album.

Dis Fig scares the shit out of me on her debut album.

Purge reminds me of the ominous industrial uncertainty that was hinted at on Arca projects like Sheep and Entrañas. However, this Fig dives head-first into this harrowing horror that's difficult to sit through at points. It is a tad gimmicky, and doesn't lend itself to repeat listens unless you're looking for something to keep you up at night.
