We first heard from Mr. Milk a year ago upon the release of his album Acquainted Karaoke. That record introduced readers of The Static Dive to the talented composer and multi-instrumentalist producer, Noah Mills. The prolific Las Vegas teen debuted last year with a remarkable 10 albums.
After remaining silent through most of 2022, the experimental instrumentalist is back. On October 31, 2022 he dropped the new album Protruding Planet, released worldwide via all major streaming services. Throughout the sixteen song collection, the 18 year-old composer uses found sound, electronics and live instrumentation to create a dark ambient and downtempo scene.
“Head Like a Hole” is the current single from Mr. MiLk’s new album Protruding Planet. The title is no coincidence, the track is a cover of Nine Inch Nails’ 1989 breakthrough hit. The song opens on an extended percussive organic intro.
Soon the beat drops on a hard groove that out-lines Trent Reznor’s industrial/alt-rock classic. Later the tune transforms again as a mix of electronic and organic instruments lay down a wildly creative retro electronica jam reminiscent of icons like Kraftwerk and Art of Noise.
Check out “Head Like a Hole” below. You can also hear the song on the Deep Indie Dive playlist, or listen on your favorite streaming service. Follow the links below to connect with Mr. MiLK. Get on his socials and get in the loop on all of the music to come from this exciting young talent.
