Album Review

Ewen/Smith/Walter – “Ewen/Smith/Walter” – [Ug Explode]

abacus   4/4/2012   A Library, CD

Free improv with teeth and claws from this ferocious trio. Complete disregard for all rhythm and tone in favor of a deconstruction of time and timbre. Cat scratching with jittering hypothermia hunting drunk hyenas on acid-drenched serengetis. Rusted seesaw toys atop jilted trashheaps. Unpredictable stop-start telepathy capable of exploding from a meow to a roar in an instant and then disappear again into the thicket. Imperceptible quakes in a cluttered kitchen on a rainy day and mad clown cackling on a crooked, broke-down merry-go-round. The nervous chatter of drums rumble within the seething, scatterbrained textures of guitar and bass/electronics. Like an incessant itch just below the skin, or a persistent nagging towards something long forgotten, these nonsense voices in your head won’t leave you sane.
