Mouthus and Axolotl – “12/25/04 ” – [Olde English Spelling Bee]

Yep, recorded on Christmas Day? East-coasters Brian and Nate of Mouthus have collaborated before with West-coaster Karl of Axolotl, and here they are hooking up again for two crazy, side-long, abstract raga-like excursions. A good guess would be that it’s mostly guitars used here, but with some of the sounds it’s hard to tell what is doing what. The yellow side, at 19 minutes, leans more toward laid-back and quiet, though it does have moments of tension. The green side, at 20 minutes, seems more agitated, heavy on what sounds like fuzz bass. If you enjoy ringing, fuzzy, reverberated loops, you’ll get your money’s worth here. I liked both sides equally for deep listening, but found the green side’s energy better for running around doing housecleaning.
