- In A Flash Everything Comes Together by Keiji Haino / Jim O'Rourke / Oren Ambarchi
Second offering from this trio, gorgeously presented on Ambarchi's Black Truffle label in lush Stephen O'Malley designed gatefold sleeve - complete with band action photos. Here Haino plays guitar, voice, lap steel and air synths. Jim O'Rourke is an Bass and Oren plays drums and what a truly fuckin' awesome combo that is. The LP documets a live performance at Super Deluxe, Tokyo, January 2010. Overall the record is more or less dominated by Haino (he even provides the track titles as ever) although the two other players do form a solid foundatio, he's really leading the way with all the darkness one expects from his output. I think Haino is pretty much on a completely other level to most musicians and this is a staggering performance from him, reaching into the darkest recesses of the soul with the most primal vocal cry's and damaged blues you could ever wish to hear. As with a lot of these performances I find there are some duller moments to be had, where they are finding their way and almost going through the motions, but when they do get there it's both joyous and immensely harrowing. Recommended but then I'm probably preaching to the converted.
