Period – “2” – [Public Eyesore]

This is a stunningly different sound featuring guitars, saxes, drums, electronics and vocals. There is quiet strumming on a de-tuned guitar a bit reminiscent of Bill Orcutt. Other tracks feature maniacal screams and sometimes fast, sometimes glacial paced drums that suggest death metal. Track 5 is the most extreme – utter cacophony. Saw a review that called it “free death jazz” – that sort of nails it. Funny thing is, it disturbs and is an enjoyable listen at the same time.
