Album Review
Reviewed 2009-09-24
Oakland free rock trio with, groaning, hammering, pulsing, pounding,and gonging. Also very restrained, structural and spacy. The percussion is great, you get a tense and hypnotic result. What Can & Luciano Berio would sound like on a spilt with Valley of the Giants 2008. Mexcellent.

fcc clean- brick

1) A prayer before the sacrificial rituals of Oaxaca. Restrained bell and bass, with gamelan styled pulse, moans, chimes, low rumblings. Sounds like a torn up little pile of ruins.

2) Human sacrifice to the Quetzalcoatl. Noisy freakout, funky rimshot drumming, shreiks, and odd rancor type guitar groans. then the rancor gets fucking unleashed, ya dig.

3) A track from the astronomers who build the step pyramids at Teotihuacan, a spacy delight, with triipppyy circular syncopated percussion, bass punctuation, and ethereal solar windswept voices.

4) Straight from monetzuma's ghost dungeon, a wobbly drony sparse noisescape, semierotic moaning, cymbal crescendoes and strained guitar cries for help.

5) The Monolith Approacheth. Great low end drony vocals, twinkly glockenspeil gamelan structure, tribal percussion, and a buzzing monolith style sound emerges.

6) The Vast Oaxacan Kingdom. Walls of SOund. Sparse, Wide Open, Drony, Vocal Serene Echoey. The bowed instrument is king of Oaxaca.
