The Tenses and Guzo are both part of the mighty Smegma collective and this confusing tape here collects two live sets, one with them together in Portland, and one with the Tenses on their own in Paris. I’m listening to the Portland set right now and it’s pretty head-melting stuff, a weird lo-fi gumbo of concrete field recordings, broken machinery and squeaky sax and unsettling throbbing tropical guitar drones.

It’s pretty surreal stuff, veering between hallucinatory intensity and dreamlike soundscapery which incorporates all kinds of sounds, from tapes to synths to an array of live instruments. The non-collaborative side is more of the same playful lo-fi twiddlings, but with a less dense palette of textures which makes it a slightly less exhausting listen. Totally out-there stuff.
