Nautical Almanac / Vertonen [coll] – [Crippled Intellect Prods.]

Killer split from Nautical Almanac (formed in 1994 in Ann Arbor), and Vertonen (Blake Edwards from the Bay Area). Droney and sometimes grooving, this album feels half like a noise party and half like a droned out war scene.

Nautical Almanac takes the award for most noise party sounding. Plethoras of beeps, a symphony of sirens, the first track feels like a wet, damp, city scene. Second track starts quiet and build to multiple electrocutions layered over the sound of breaking glass then a warbled computer in an empty hospital room. A3 is the noise party Friday night!

Vertonen wins war scene award for it’s first two tracks. First one takes place in outer space and the second near a helicopter pad at sunset. B3 is a salsa-ish song… yeah you heard me. Cool release, interesting blend of the two groups, recommended for everyone!
