Album Review

Harrius – “Enter The Cotton Ring ” – [Ehse]

Thurston Hunger   5/3/2007   12-inch, A Library

Jenny Graf Sheppard (Metalux) and Chiara Giovando are the mistressminds
behind Harrius. This is a bizarre dream of a record, indeed “Ringer’s
Glove” sort of reminded me of the sleep sequences from the outstanding
film, “The Manuscript Found At Saragoss.” Something about the succubus
sounds and the tick-tock plunking percussion re-conjured up images of
drinking from a skull. Indeed the music here is allegedly from an unsound
soundtrack to a “sychedelic Western recently shot in the Badlands” (and
that’s straight out of the horse’s web site). The title track is a sort
of ladies lost in the canyon free-fall-folk ditty. “The Wedding Ring”
has many bands, chopped and wobbly bands of sound. “L’OK” feels like
a small slice of Fursaxa heaven. “Ebolatime” has a low rumble guitar
and more voice-acting song could be a cross between Obuh records and
Mauve Sideshow…but really this is willfully weirdly its own brand of
wonder! “Proud Flesh” works a deep subconscious rupture…like a
blood vessel mic’d up to volcano level? Lastly “Uppera” is another
oddly divine number, like angels pacing back and forth in some scrambled
universe. And then a very faint looked groove at the end! This is a
fantastic twisted, yet intricately so, release! Do not miss!
