This is the first outing for Manchester based, lo-fi label Carnivals and what an excellent start it is!! A split release from touring buddies A middle sex and Temperatures with an awesome eye-boobs cover (this sounds crude but that is what appears to be going on). A Middle Sex have produced their best work so far with 'Unclean Yawn'. I've seen this Manchester improvised noise trio on a number of occasions and can't help but be amazed at the wonders that they conjure with such simple tools. Swirling loops of drone and wailing feedback act as a canvas for layered tribal drums, scattered vocal chants and some sinister guitar wailings of the best kind. What amazes me is the consistency of the track and it's valiant efforts to cover all bases, wandering from rapturous outpourings of sound and rhythm to static drones, drifting ambience and 'almost' pop friendly bliss. This is a total winner! Comparative to the Boredoms, Black Eyes and (to an extent) Liquid Liquid for there ability to successfully merge uplifting ambience with thunderous assaults of rhythm. Awesome. Temperatures 'Bifurcation' is an entirely different beast, 16 minutes of miserable, spiteful, hulking free jazz madness steadily corroding in on itself. Bass dirge and moog drone are juxtaposed with a one handed mad man drumming to create a crazy wild soundtrack to your own death. I've heard Temperatures in more inventive spirits than on 'Bifurcation' but they do succeed in boaring a giant sized hole in my cranium with thier deliberately intense, self decaying sonic mish mash. Ace. Both sides of this record are totally worth hearing. This is easily my choice for album of the month...hint hint.
