Poetry and percussive stupor become symbiotic on this new, ever-so limited tape from Map71. One of them, he’s a drummer -- Andy Pyne is his name, and he creates a claustrophobic, super metallic racket with repetitive and ear-clinging rhythms. The other’s a poet by the name os Lisa Jayne, whose driven verse refuses to let up and keeps an almost permanent place in proceedings -- between the super sparse electronic additives and Pyne’s corner-filling drums, Jayne’s words for ‘Gloriosa’ become inescapable, the whole thing making me look around the room at all the walls to work out where it’s all coming from.

This kinda noisified spoken word proves weirdly and reluctantly immersive, with Jayne’s words a first-person document of the super abstract. Recommended for those of you who enjoyed that weird and wonderful Tim Darcy tape with AJ Cornell last year -- and for those who like the mix of electronics and drums that come from being a Boredoms fan, as you may already be wise to Pyne's work.
