Pitsiokos / Walter / Anderson – “Maximalism” – [Eleatic Records]

R-50-4762808-1374713049-6601

Some more spazz jazz from the dirty Weasel and fellow Brooklyn grimesters. Three studio tracks and a live recording from earlier this year at the local Freedom Garden. Free and unrestrained to an uncontrollable level but not the fuck-off firestorm of pounding and shrieking you might expect from the Weasel of yore. This is more on the frantic jittery end with young sax demon Pitsiokos (Bob Crusoe) doubling on synth to provide a splattering of sputtering and established guitar gutter Ron Anderson (PAK, Ronruins) gluing the group together. If you’re looking for more of a punch in the face, then track 5 might be to your liking, or if you want more subdued nervousness, dip into track 2. The longer tracks (1,3,7) go through all levels of dynamics and space, with Pitsiokos hopping on synth for full-fledged cyborg meltdown. Anderson really shines in the live performance (3 especially), digging in and tearing apart those strings in frayed fingering and shredding. If manic is your mood and hysteria is your hype, this drugs for you.
