The Original Silence album from a little while back is in on tasty, tasty double vinyl so I guess maybe that makes it the second Second Original Silence? Or the original second Second Original Silence? But then it does make noise so maybe it's the original second Second Original actually noisy pretend Silence? In any case, this all-star cast boasts Thurston Moore, Jim O'Rourke, The Thing, Terrie Ex of The Ex and Massimo Pupillo of Zu so it's got more pedigree than your brain can actually handle, pedigree that delights in building noisy jazz shapes out of sound Lego. The best tunes here take their inspiration from the more out-there areas of improvisational avant-jazz, fusing that outlook with more conventional bassy rock grooves like Ornette Coleman doing Fun House covers with Shellac perhaps. That's the positive, and it's very very positive, but there's the odd patience tester in there for sure.. 'Free' doesn't automatically mean 'good', y'nar? Definitely a recommendation on the whole though and if you were into that Zu album (as it seems many of you were) this pushes that sort of sound into more abstract places. If you're hankering for more reference points Ant is reminded of Borbetomagus and any fans of the harsher Tzadik stuff might want to have a little sniff of the bicycle seat.
