Album Review

Cline, Nels/ Corsano, Chris/ Giffoni, Carlos – “GRADUATION” – [FREE103POINT9]

mickeyslim   4/30/2014   12-inch, A Library



The first part of this album by noisicians Nels Cline, Chris Corsano and Carlos Giffoni (this time calling themselves the Graduation Trio) starts as an assaulting improv of guitar/drums/electronics and slowly winds down, with quirky guitar ramblings and quiet drum madness fizzling out, electronic tweaks and static crawl through the cracks the whole way through.

Then, once you’ve finished that.. you can enjoy it again, this time re-mixed by Carlos Giffoni, much noisier, more electronic, more glitchy, and doomier at parts, much more dynamic sounding if that’s what you’re going for. B-side takes on a personal feel, like Giffoni’s own project, in a sense.

I enjoyed the A-side more, for it’s earthier sounding noise (if that’s a thing).
