I tried to give this LP a preliminary listen at dinner time last night, but it quickly became apparent that its disjointed avant garde ambiance was a bit too high brow for my long-suffering housemate so it didn't last long. Listening to it on my own at half past seven in the morning, however, is another story entirely as I'm able to properly devote my attention to Courtis's latest head-scratching noise tapestry.   There's all sorts going on here, from weirdly layered field recordings that clack and slap and clatter and rumble chaotically, farty'n'squeaky brass drones, tinkling bells, harsh electronic buzzes and squealing feedback...but don't worry, it tends to be sequential, these things aren't all happening at the same time! Each sonic idea is given a little time to breathe and develop, but it's still a somewhat confrontational and difficult aesthetic that will most likely alienate anyone on the hunt for a tune. If a confusing and vibrant collection of awkward textures is what you're looking for, though, this is a treasure trove.
