8/10 Brian 24 November 2011

On Eli Keszler's REL imprint comes this crazy album of bizarre murky sound-art & lo-fi full-on guitar improv. from a chap who released something on Type a while ago. I'm reminded heavily of a proper fascinating Joshua Burkett album I heard a couple of years ago. Recorded in a dingy homemade style this album of shredded, gibbering string abuse is awash with beautiful intricate textures, playful warped mini-drones, bent-out-of-shape notes and the dings, flutters, belches and de-tuned caterwauling of contorted guitar abuse /exploration. It is not in any way an unlistenable din like I sort of expected but instead comes across like a veritable zoo of yawning, stretching, collapsing sound, in turn both amusing and massively thought- provoking! I'm thrown into the world of a free-form orchestra trying to find a new form of expression from total deconstruction of musical form, in turn creating one of the loosest organic jams I've heard in recent times. I'd rather listen to this wonky mess than Rhys Chatham's guitar army, one eternal riff or the complete annihilation of the concept of the riff (or even structure/melody/virtuosity) as presented here?
