Album Review

AC / DP – “High Voltage” – [Middle James Co]

cinder   4/13/2012   12-inch, A Library

Not a typo, this is Andrew Coltrane and David Payne (Fossils). Side A is a peak into an experimentalists dark nightmares. Starts out with a plucking of a guitar, which evolves into a heavily echoed nerve. Sliding, clanking, reverbs, delays on what sounds like metals and percussion. I can envision a tilted camera, lots of fog and a swinging light bulb in a tiny damp warehouse. Side ends with a locked groove. Side B is a little more subdued. Heavy repeating winds, and winding tones. If you zone out enough, it feels like you’re listening to the howl of an on-coming train in the subway. I listened to the whole thing on 33, but seeing as there’s another locked groove at the end of side B with words, I think it’s meant to be played at 45. Either sound great!
