This is the final release on The Remote Viewer's Moteer imprint, and it's a collection of dusty semi-ambient downbeat workouts from Arizonan duo Tokyo Bloodworm, limited copies of which come with a bonus CD of remixes from the likes of Remote Viewer, Sun Hammer and Manyfingers. Pretty hard work in places, to be honest, and the first half of the CD passes with very little melody to speak of; largely just minimal electronics and guitar with clanks and creaks and groans and finger noise creating a dusky Eastern ambience. After six tracks of noncommittal chuntering the second half of the record is quite different, though, with the introduction of 12-stringer Phillip Shiozaki and composer and multi-instrumentalist William Ryan Fritch. Melody and structure come to the fore and it really comes to life, particularly on the penultimate track 'Flames Set In Wooden Frames', which evokes Nick Cave and Warren Ellis's solo work, or Valley of the Giants. It's a slow-burner, but there's some lovely moments for those with a little patience or a lot of opiates.
