Album Review
Reviewed 2005-03-01
Experimental: minimal improvised ambient, noise, psuedo-industrial. Tweaks, squeaks and drones (few beeps and clicks), in two long tracks. I don’t know what in it appeals to me, but it did! Check it out. This is the third album from this French group. Play part or full tracks, but keep the levels up. Extra-cool stuff. Weird shit these guys can do with guitar, sax, piano and percussion.
1. [25:30] Minimal yet crunchy, thundery, feedbacks, drones, strangely fascinating. More "happening" starting –9:30, gets louder, then comes down. Cymbals and gongs, rattles and bells towards end. Last 30 secs silent.
2. [only 17:09!] Sweet (well maybe this isn’t the right adjective), some high guitar/piano notes, strings plucked, illegal acts performed on saxes, drones, gongs and noise. Great. Mor
