Marmite, as we all aware, has a certain clichéd reputation. Maybe the same assessment can be levelled at that avant-guard stuff that hovers around the edges of our lovely music pond...maybe.
Ever since exposure to early Laurie Anderson I've always kept a space open for such route-less-travelled material of the American psyche. Evan Caminiti, here in his painted caves persona as a bit player in that whole west coast thing, does not disappoint: raising the game-bar by swapping his usual guitar-as-primary-source (Barn Owl, Higuma)for a modular synth. Nice one!
The pressing is superb: sonic-wise the material will thoroughly test the integrity of your sub-woofers. That said the overall effect is one edgy introspection anyway. Seven tracks, with nothing longer than 5 and change minutes was a surprise and a couple of times the abrupt terminations had me puzzled- tho' I've got a feeling that this is exactly the nub of point he's making. It's definitely mood-invading sound layers of the highest order and quite inspiring: even in its own grim bleakness there are some rich counter points constantly being made. If the sleeve notes revealed that this was the soundtrack from a Scandinavian film about psychotic schizophrenia - which they don't, yet - I doubt if, after a couple of listens, you'd bat an eyelid. Awesome stuff...I'm hooked.
