Album Review

Nurse With Wound – “Rock ‘n Roll Station ” – [Beta-Lactam Ring Records]

Thurston Hunger   8/3/2006   A Library, CD

The lead-off spoken dream is so potent, w/ repetition building
its own mini mythology. Steven Stapleton needs no introduction,
but do you need a battlecry, how about “rock ‘n roll session is
a session where we can do what we want to do.” This record is
immersed in dark freedom. Often warped over a heart murmur beat.
Next up more shadowy deep rhythms, a siren whisper/beckoning,
go ahead slide into the glass slipper, cinderfella. “Two Golden
Microphones” sports twin suns in the sky of a David Lynch film,
sonic surveilance from the weeds, revolving soundscape even a
slice of rockabilly flies by, later it returns from the dead as
a didgeridoo spirit. Mulu to you? Next up on the fight card,
a match that is as much a dance as bout on the canvas in
the ring. Uppercuts of squelch give Thumbtack a technical
knockout. Otherworldly transmissions cut through the rumble
and blitz (the new “R+B”?). Amniotic pressure pounds in #6,
noise abates and we get echoes of chops in near total silence
that eventually reconstitute for rebirth, greeted by an angel.
