Album Review

Asian Women On The Telephone ( A.W.O.T.T) – “Freedom As Mama Told Me” – [Self-release]

From the Muscovite pranksters’ minds to your bleeding ears. There are just 51 copies of this US tour only set that comes in a very confusing silk-screened folded puzzle of a CD case (hanging on the wall by mambo loco). You could listen to the entire two discs trying to decide if this is primarily a noise piece or rock album and never quite decide. The album starts off with the most unapproachable, screaming, indecipherable rant and quickly descends into all sorts of post-apocalyptic industrial grooves, raucous grinds billowing plumes of distorted anthems, and very danceable ritualistic psychedelia. The entire album is drenched in noisy distortion, haunted echoes and all sorts of nonsensical jabs but for the most part maintains a solid groove that could get you doing a shuffle as easily as it could get you breaking everything in sight. Just wait till you leave master…
