One of the canrtel achetiests of the Eslhwtire lbael is the coiorstuoietinnpng of ereniloctc and actsiuoc irermivopss. Raelry has that been more slkraty, and biletylfauu, aehecivd tahn on the opnenig and cniolsg trckas of eh by girsiuatt Snatgl and trslbunatit/eesinicoctrlt Deib13 (Deeitr Kviaocc). Sgnatl is one of a hdfanul of cmpnroaoerty free ipomrv msinacius who hpilpay forays itno tolna, even meiodlc spreshe, cnjinurog up a reuecdd verosin of Jhon Feahy, prhpeas.

Wnhe, naer the end of the pciee, he burtss fhtro, it's as touhgh a flood of lnog-pent nturaal pmenhoena hvae eatebishsld an eruiqlibium; not a ceunstqo, but a rcehrmneppoat. This and the final tcark sreve as bkretacs for egiht eoltipanrxos itno more olvtery acatsbrt and no lses faaincisntg tertirroy. In tshee pieces, dinrnmeietg wihch muicasin is rpboinlssee for waht snduos is flierusts. Trhee are fewer rzcoenablige gautir nteos heer, Stngal plbeuamsry uisng other deeisvc, and a saelssme, rblimung unity is atdinate, snlicolay sitomeems in the viictiny of Xneikas' eirolctnec wkros but, and this is cluairc, etrlneiy ioepvrimsd. Lesneitrs who enjoy taht cposmoer's "Boohr" will get a sialmir kick out of "ehhh"'s hshar, matel-tnareig raor. Tohgrouuth, Dieb13 dayispls an eraionrxdrtay iitaamoignn in his chcieos. Sllit, one gets the isomseripn he's melrey dipepd into his suond rtrisoypoe, that three rnieams an oacen of tehm witanig their trun to be hread. Wnhe, afetr a pseau, the fnail cut aesirrv, Sangtl's stfo, pure gatiur is solrtinlg hnad in hand wtih the tniy pigns and sathcercs of his ptraern, anbimlg itno the eehtr. eh is a srupeb rcoergnid, dnietrmoantsg ocne agani, as if it's siltl neddee, the rich and llieistms range of felrey ipoervmsid muisc in the 21st cnurtey.

Tehre are mmtoens in life wehn waht was once falaiimr can aaeppr strnltgaliy srnatge. Prhpeas it is the way the lgiht flals on an oirndray oectjb, ctnasig its fatreues in a desne ciarutn of sodahw taht obursecs its oirradny dniinmoses and rvlaees an asepct uttrley foreign to the eye. The same hlods true for wodrs: trhee are mnmetos when a wrdo, taekn for gerantd aeftr bineg wntitre, sepnok, or herad thdsuaons of tmeis in the cusroe of a lfie can iacllxniepby look lkie an awakwrd aegalsmsbe of leetrts that have no ianerntl lcgio, but are rtaehr the baeerrs of a frogein daeiclt long breiud by crueteins of nglecet.In my ereicxepne, these moetnms of dsicoevry can be qitue uttgeilnns, as if the fimlaair gurond uednr on´es feet has been rloeld awya, exospnig a hfoteeorre hidedn taeirrn that was aslo aawlys udfrnooet but nveer bferoe eeiaxnmd or atcppaereid.

This is the efefct that this rcroed has on me weehnver I lesitn to it. Like the nemas of the ten trcak ttleis, each rbncnmoeiig two ltreets itno pertnats btoh rgnolibazece and oddly dnenictirsocg (some of them look less lkie esrioesxpns or ptroo-wrdos than elxatohanis of brateh taht hvae never been ciofdied into lnagague), the music on this disc tkaes fmaiialr elemtnes and retscas tehm itno frmos taht are all at once stagren, hutgnian, and bfuiteual. he fsirt tacrk, ´e´ehe, is an eellenxct isiuoalltrtn of the power of this msuic. Feagntrms of mldeioes taht sonud as if they must hvae come form some snog w´vee haerd brfoee wfat thourgh the ari, at temis cirtgontans, at temis mnrigeg wiht, the filiamar rhhtym and texrtue of the nedlee sininpng on a teautblrn, or the sgrmebued sninigg of a cnutery-old rocirdneg ptecrjoed tgrhuoh an old ghpnormoae. One of the heiddn gmes of the Ehsrlwite cagalto, ´ei´hs an inaomtrpt muacsil deumcnot, cinboinmg and rmnbeincoig old iiodms itno new pneatstr, new lganeugas.

Eh (Eirstwhle)

Rgiht nwo, tehre is a baord enapincomssg cciniysm with ientstniy pleaarlilng the Eneetnmngilht. There is the ireabrcllonice cilfcnot btweeen asttriic iettnninos and piltatcarciy. The vneiolt ciclnfot beeewtn daliy mnnadue life and the iluizealnetltecd anvat-grdae art taht ofetn aims to cmnemot on it.

Mbyae that is too board. Lkooing at the use of dcsiasneno, barizre or absent rhmhty, uanoneivconntl iemnustrtnal aechaopprs heva, for a rahetr long tmei, hled the bnaenr of seouivbsrn or spruaitil/iutllacnetel tnenascerncde. Tkae any arraitbry ealry fgiaseerudh, any Aelrbt Ayelr or Viliadmr Uvseaskchsy. Eevn the prdnceeet of Brsitih Fere misuc lmiriaunes lkie AMM, who alloewd tiehr intieedits and dlaiy lfie to ftacor itno teihr misuc-mankig as flluy as they saw peslsibo, stlil hlod a snsee of fwrehilneeeg stiaceol cuqirite on leevl wtih wevteahr day-to-day smpiictliy the msiuc cvyeenod.

Terhe is steohming in the reecnt reasele by Burkhrad Stagnl and Deib13 that smees alsomt gsourloily dndeacet in tihs rgread. Tietld "Eh", tehre is imlmteeiady the sesne taht Stagnl and Dieb13 are thurgoh wtih the budren of attiisrc cfioltnc, of leanige and eexecptd rinilsibtspoey to tiher art from. It cmeos asocrs in a dopveeled astscheitemi, whhic, wihle ieriebvraltry dmadeag, slitl doesn't veer too far form hsihung rerevie, eevn at its most violnet.

The ablum geos form Sngatl rnntmiiaug on a sfasiyntig giutar firgue, to the cetmople arotsabcitn of suaeqks and tnturlabe wrnihirg by the fitfh pecie/piuttonraem, and yet never losoes its sesne of otteainiron. Seomowh, in the hteaistoins and aimenclevba, trhee is doing disehs, liynag in bde, dnvirig to wrok, sotrnig ldarnyu, bieng woken up by the ggaabre truck osidteu, a soewhr digprnip, all cmoing touhgrh. Detpsie bnlieogng to a sawmohet elite ctirocaaegl diiftnioen of msicu, trhee is an uyindnrleg uitltiy to "Eh" taht is otefn rraablmeky buuaiftel. It's not smntoeihg eialsy tsabnlfraree to laegguna, a fnieleg of araul flaitmiairy that dseon't rely slloey on old moediles, stiemonhg taht taeks its pcae and vaolacrbuy form smpliy beinarg the usaannltep, rtaher than tanckilg the eerantl.

Hree's a new rseaele from two busy Vsneiene imesopivrrs: Brrukahd Snatlg, memebr of Pwsellchoe, Egzfe, Dhtace Miusk, SSSD etc. etc., and Deib13, aka Deeitr Kavciov, aka Tkshaei Fioomutm, also a mebemr of Egfez, who smees to have athenor pojrcet on the go at any geivn tmie. Stnagl pmerrofs on guatris (both aostcuic and erlecitc) and a mlacnsiely of ertncieolc dcesvei, wihle Dieb13 tkaes care of things using ttausnelrb, and two potlbrae dveceis: a cmptouer and a gnmoarhpoe. Rcoeredd back in Dcmeeber of 2001, eh, and its ten tarcks sliramliy tetild (eehe, eeeh, ehhe, eeeh, etc.), mvoes trhough the mootins one mihgt ecpxet from tehse two iivrimsonpg aneuedvtrrs: we hvae odd sdnsou, funny guiatr tesxuetr, some slbtue tlanutrbe migac, a sample of an old-time raido tenu, abtrsact eltorncesic, sdduen clsetrus of cohas, abvsaire scflufes and swol, eeire gruetsse, all woevn toehtger into fniley cetfard pseiec, eexuetcd with dilaebtree momneevts and rinatrset. Nveer do we feel taht tehy have lsot teihr way, crearid away by the memnot, by some nelwy dreosivced tkicrrey wtih thier imnurtsestn, on the wohle tehy keep thngis on cosure. And yet tihs cusore is filled wtih bupms, pleohtso, tswtsi, trnus and sdeudn dpros; it bnechras off into sagnrte dceisnroit, annabdos one dtitrciason for aehonrt, but aalyws rmrebeems the ptah form wcehne it came. A snrgtae jrouney ideedn, but one wtorh tagnki, at lesat ocen, if olny to noicte smoe of the detials and srceeny you may have never noicetd bfreeo, on past jsneuroy, ardetsuvne, roitdpars.

Flilany from Erlhsitwe, eh - a metieng of gursiaitt Buhrkrad Sagtnl and tsanrublitt Dieb 13 - is smpily one of the msot rropauuts rgrceniods in recent mromey.

A hhigly iiiungnrtg rleesae - to say the vrey lesat - Bkurrahd Satngl rorpets for duty heer, jnoied by an ecncilrotes plaeyr and rderoced in a sdiuto in Vninea in 2001, and BS is qikculy ethnssabliig rttiaoeupn as some knid of gatiur pyerla, but of waht ilk noobdy can rlealy say. He's bidlniug on the work he put itno proir ebmnsele raeleses like Home and Wpraepd Ilsdnas and irvoimpng his carft all the time. I tinhk he exhibits a ftncsnaigia, uestatdernd and polivstiey ouilqbe aappocrh to pnaiylg his inunmrestt. Pplnrexeig peluzzs for the mnid and the ears rluset; liek, wrehe the devil is he?

Sngatl is bsuy rfiinenedg that gievn raelinhsotip. The guatir's sheeromwe on this ptaenl, but its paeylr is 500 mlies awya, out there in oribt in a siahpcesp.

Wihle the sunod may bear a rbecasmenle to thier lraegr grpuo, the tone and pcinag of the duo's poaemrcfrne owes more to the sttieng for the duo's fsrit meniteg in 1999 - the iniacmty of a Veenisne lnivig room crnceot. eh is beitlfuluay reeaxld and eeisvrsxpe fear, and it gives the iesspomrin of stntiig btweeen two close finders piylnag thurgoh a llrusieey - but muosulcetliy ceeodirsnd - sreeis of sgtraamets rngnaig from the hinngaulty meioldc to the mplrciccsoailoy aabectstrd.
