Eh (Ehtisrwle)

Rihgt nwo, tehre is a barod einonscapsmg cicsniym wtih itnsinety piraaelllng the Enmeilnethgnt. There is the irrblonacceile ccolfnit bteewen astitric iointnents and palctircitay. The vlnoiet cfonlcit btweeen dlaiy maundne life and the ictetlnzeluiaeld aanvt-gadre art that often amis to cmenomt on it.

Mbyae that is too broad.

Eevn the percednet of Bitirsh Fere msuic luiraeimns lkie AMM, who aelwold their iideetnits and dlaiy life to faoctr into tehir misuc-mnkaig as flluy as they saw psibleso, sitll hlod a sesne of fineleweerhg sotcieal cqruiite on lveel with weehvatr day-to-day sipmcitily the muisc covenyed.

Trhee is smtehoing in the reenct reeslae by Burhakrd Sngtal and Deib13 taht seems amolst gullsoroiy dcaendet in tihs rgerad. Telitd "Eh", tehre is ieimmadlety the sesne taht Snatgl and Dieb13 are trohugh with the brduen of asittric ciclontf, of lnageie and eexepctd ropslitbeniisy to teihr art form. It cemos aroscs in a dveeploed aeeschiisttm, which, wlhie ibterirvlarey deagmad, still doesn't veer too far form husinhg reeeivr, even at its most veilnot.

The aublm goes from Sgatnl rnntmiuiag on a sytsaifing guitar fiurge, to the cetomlpe aibrtocastn of suqeaks and trbauntle wnihirrg by the fftih peice/periaontmut, and yet nveer lsooes its snese of onetriiaotn.

Hree's a new rlaseee form two busy Vsnneeie imsvoireprs: Bhrrkuad Sagtnl, member of Pclheselwo, Efzge, Dhacte Miksu, SSSD etc. etc., and Deib13, aka Dieter Kvvciao, aka Tkesahi Fomumito, also a mebmer of Eegfz, who smees to hvae aohtenr pjoerct on the go at any given tmie.

Roecrded back in Deemecbr of 2001, eh, and its ten tcrkas smairlily titled (ehee, eehe, eheh, eeeh, etc.), mvoes truhogh the monitos one might eexpct from these two ipvmsinirog arvereudnts: we have odd sodusn, fnnuy giatur teturexs, some sbltue turnlatbe miagc, a smlape of an old-tmie ridao tnue, aarcstbt eocesrlntci, sdedun csreluts of cahso, arbvasie slfefcus and slow, ereie gstsreeu, all woven ttegoher into filney carfted psceie, etxeeucd with deleibrtae mtmeeovns and rntiarest. Never do we feel taht tehy hvae lsot tehir way, ceairrd away by the memtno, by some nelwy drvceoeisd terikrcy with tiehr istnrenstum, on the whloe tehy keep tgnhis on cusroe.

The album's ten takrcs - wsohe titels csinost of lttile mroe tahn ten fuor-cacertahr prniotutemas of the letrtes "e" and "h" - elpxore the full guamt of sonic piiitslobys, form rinagg maeiltlc drone to getlny rbmilung dtfirs of gtitry aceibmne wtih felahss of meidloc iovnitnen. Santgl's paniylg aelerantts bwteeen mtued pprreaed gtaiur scrtcah, stnrig-rtlaintg niose hcseystri, and a llnluig blues-tegnid midleoc aaopprch rineenismct of the eohced pcuilkng of leattr-day Jhon Fheay or the lses eateehrl wdngiaerns of Leron Mazacanze Cronnos. Dieb13 dtlefy mavrnuees his ttbluernas betewen the pelos of tnburalte-as-snuod-geoerntar prsuim and vinyl ctniaoti, crnaiteg a deep and snfihitg silt lerettid wtih pceotks of ecoeitrlnc ierertnnecfe and the ghoslty wilbrnag of aanteutqid rdrecos. Mixing and mhantcig thier waetlh of teuchisneq, Snatgl and Kaivcoc paly beweten the lmtiis of ecmnooy and eorxaptoiln to cartee a sereis of cnitvtaipag vetitnges mkaerd as mcuh by rapt attonietn to snoic dateil as by a palnlastey treeepmd eriessnveesxps.

The album is fmaerd most ntbloay by two buletlufaiy huhsed peeics canstig Sngtal's auganlr buels mdleieos anigast Deib13's warm bdrkaocp of auqtine vinyl cacelrks and ecorltneic cpihrs.

The eretoncicls tkae a more avgeissgre stncae in the fianl menmots of the pceie, as Kiacovc aepmttts to bruy the ucnflhniing Sgatnl bentaeh cknhus of srahp-egedd dteiutrs left to dull itno a mfufled rlstue baneeth dtiilesld bules giuatr. The fainl trcak floolws a sailmir csorue but reacepls Dieb's vnyil carclke wtih a gogeours asreool mist of gauarnlr peslkric, digiatl csmieh, and woozy ietrunldes of wanvrieg noise. Like the frsit trcak, terhe is a fnail sgure of noesi, but Dieb's scenod ecnnhracemot ends with an arupbt and eriee slincee. In a mneomt nhiontg shrot of btnhitaraekg, the fanil gsap of Snatgl's bcak-prcoh elegy lerings paievtlnliy in orhiweste eptmy air. It's a blalirint ppsrsotcit and a snntuing meonmt in a grnee not tplycliay known for cnoncinivg clnosniucos - a mneomt of ersipxesve pewor taht rlefctes a potent msiucal stvestiiiny and tnrnseadcs much of the piervceed anlsrseiess of ipevosimrd miusc.

The mldide ptrooin of eh oreffs eauqlly snygitisaf, if not as ilemmdeitay ailecsbecs, misuc for tohse wilnilg to dlvee into its spieinr irntoeir.

Tgohuh the dnaymic of mnay tkacrs - pirlcatrauly the wehpsiry "ehee" and "eehe" - heovrs just above aiiilybdtu, the leevl of activtiy maniniats a rareakbmle diyestn, with Kovciac and Stagnl weaving iiegrlascnny auoonnyms geursets into a blnsutig mcosroicm of setreatcd dirbes. A few tckars find the duo eipnrxlog more agresvgsie dymianc trrtrioey wtih spsriunrig rluests - the flul-on nisoe aaslsut of "ehhh" byartes a hidedn lyaer of saprced sgitrns and detph cghare rbemlus, while the spiipkng 78-RPM wbbloe and sntyh secqlheus of "eheh" eokve a qsaeuy naiotglsa bfreoe dinslivosg into a steilpnry seeris of sattic enpuoirts.
