- Paper Fault Line by James Rushford & Joe Talia
This is apparently going to be double-beard or uber-chin. We can't quite decide. Utilising everything from viola, cardboard, church organ, megaphone and erm....polystyrene, these two berzerkers revel in creating a strange, sinister sound-world that creeps you out as much as fascinates you. I once read a lovely picture book called The Tin Forest to my girlfriend's young boy and the first ten minutes of this comprise the “unreleased” soundtrack to that book in my mind. Trying to describe it in a non-academic manner is just as difficult as intellectually boring you to death, something which I'm not particularly adept at (well boring you to death maybe, yeah!) but the polystyrene sounds fantastic. There's lots of glitchy organic sounds, scrunching, creaking (oh that's Business Lady rocking on her chair, sorry!), metallic twattery, concrete atmospherics and hovering ambient auras occurring. Side two continues in this freeform improv vein, some right old gibbering electronic pooting and whirring happening here and there...the production is absolutely amazing though, even though it's all a bit of a challenging listen. There's no wall noise or horrid frequencies here, it's quite a playful record that utilises silence and space at interludes to dramatic affect. Business Lady has her ear plugs in which means emphatically this isn't for the party-poppers out there. Like we say here, ultimate chin, get yer twirly beards out!...
