DNT 3″ Split Series Vol. 1 – May [coll] – [Dnt Records]

Thurston Hunger   10/21/2008   A Library, CD

Does DNT really stand for “Doris Nodric Tribute” or could it
change from release to release “Demand New Tunes” or “Death
Nicely Transcended”? Evidentyl label-runner Tynan Krakoff has
fought off lymphoma, and hopefully can continue to deliver
wonder WTF sounds via DNT. Let’s start with part two of this
nice 3″ homemade split. MYTHICAL BEAST feature whale-speak
guitar (maybe crossed with a tambura buzz) and synth that then
serve for the as a slow swirly bed for the marbles-in-the-mouth,
yodel-till-your-soul-echoes voice of Corinne Sweeney. I like
her voice, sort of Faun Fables in a very foggy canyon but her
histrionics will likely split folks. The lead-off cut from
Redondo Beach’s OH HOME sure covers a lot of turf on one track.
Oddball tape twister, new No-Wave galloping dance party stops on
a cymbal, goes through a found percussion clang gang then with
3.5 minutes left, they get struck by a Lightning Bolt out of
the blue for an energy fission giving way to a falsetto glam
prance. Then more cassette capture, now over a hummy cathedral
drone…and a little drummy jam flourish for 13 seconds to end.
Fascinating, while impossible to fasten much of a label to them.
Pretty compelling contrast in the chaotic fracas of OH HOME
versus the consistent focus of MYTHICAL BEAST.
