Reynols – “Whistling Kettle Quartet ” – [Sedimental]

Thurston Hunger   7/2/2006   12-inch, A Library

Single sided serving in three portions. Perhaps breakfast,
lunch and the high tea? First piece is a mostly recognizable
sound of pressure, you know if you’ve seen older films…
the moment at the dinner table when someone is about to
confess and then, shreeeeee cut to the shiny kettle. Try and
do *that* with a microwave, damn you! The second selection
feels like we’re not in the kitchen, or Kansas any more but
whisked high up into the strata with angels in squad cars
sending their sirens down to your soul. The last selection
is indeed the most high, royally sounding like a squeaky
iron lung. The pressure has been squealed on up and likely
sent through some sort of effects processing. Either that
or Golem is stuck inside the kettle, even the less psychotic
(though no less loved) KFJC listeners are going to hear
voices during this concluding, “life is but a steam” sonic
round of soprano, tenor, contralto and lastly the extremely
difficult-to-master baritone, whistling kettles.
