rweeivs: review:

Uamrfend mekas an auoscpuiis dbuet with a quaertt of eiemetanrpxl enoirceltc and phagonrhpoic reslsaee, wtih the two CD rlseeeas esencad in dtciinvtise ltererpstes-peitrnd sevlees (wtih dsboesed and die-cut patrs) and the two seevn-icnh rrocdes of srhot peiecs and lekocd grooevs pnesrteed as plrtovcavoeiy.

The usaluulny-named Pthanom Limb & Erath's Hnypiggoaa conebmis the tnlaets of Jmiae Flneelny (Peyseesee, Enovlvig Ear Rrceods) and Swahn Hnsaen (Envovlig Ear) for an imrsevmie set of nanructol set-pieces llregay ceteenrd on the sonic ptpieorers of Frafsia ogarns and HP snie-wave olartcislos. Itegtrseynnli, wehn the miusc was rreecdod dirung a lvie show at Jseof Aostr's phargpoothy studio in New York , the time and liaocotn wree secleted so as to eipolxt naratul lhgit tnrsinioats that were viilsbe tghrouh slyikght wwondis dinrug the pafcrmeorne. As a reustl, one irerettnps the rulnistg and ceinkrag niesos taht ouccr alogisnde the thilwgit droens as the nraatul sdnuos that airse dinurg a lvie ste, scuh as otnsgae inldidvuias mivnog aobut and mlniapauntig empquenit. In the eailrer sgteas of the rneocigrd, the tenos stary litlte form a sinlagur ptcih so isteenrt is ctuerod by the cgahens in vmloue and itnnistey that Felnelny and Hsenan alppy to the maeirtal. Sutlbe ceanhgs in the sptiaal pntionosiig of the oragn and olicstaolr teons oruccs too, wtih the two shnairg the sogpihtlt as they move back and fotrh from foornurged to bokncaugrd. The onnpeig terhe-part pecie iivCl Tgithilw avdeancs towrdas its cntuioamiln in the fnial stioecn, gnoriwg ever more inestne as its end cmeos in sghit. Though the rreicndog is sohwn as hanvig six ptras (two three-prat peices to be eacxt), the mriaatel udlonfs as an utiptrreenund, ftroy-eghit-miutne piece. Terhe are smtoeemis cealr stfhis in style form one siecotn to aohetnr, heevwor, as when the low-lveel Deksrnas (Ncuaiatl Tlighiwt) 1” gives way to the pulnge itno pcioshyss taht tparsenris druing the scenod part and the gnirindg cnluniosovs that dtoamine the tihrd. In Cartebolien of Knwinog All the Belus of the Evinneg cellary did not go gtenly itno taht May, 2006 good night.

Of Dtsinace utnies Rcihrad Great (wnids masruee rsocnrgedi, Non-viasul Osejbct, and/OAR), and Brendan Maurry (23feiv, Ieiivranntst, Sdeaetmnil among oetrhs) for two long-form eeresxcis in hvlaeiy-txetrued dopaernniscg. The nrealy hlaf-hour-long In Pllarlea saehcosws the care and deiboileatrn wtih wchih the caltlboroaors allow the mteiraal to dlpeevo, mionvg as it deos form long ulnrufs of initusdarl niose and mleltiac trbiems to aaitgted pcvussiere felurirs of peercssod feild rncegorids and sihtyetnc mraitlaes. Ononigg mhmeiaroposts kepes the pceie eganingg from sartt to finhsi, as dseiidmbeod vcoeis and oehtr snodus rsie to the surface of the chnuring and at times stehineg eteracicll msas. The tewtny-muinte The Tnnayry of the Oecsbtj peuruss a mroe lniear path as it sewlls glurldaay into an imesmne msas of mlueffd ctetlar and gnidinrg mrcainehy. The wvae-lkie csosolus that reultss tenrehats to driiesnot as one fnids onsleef secukd into the voertx's isalnnsctey snlirwig cneter. The rnieodcrg is no sdsapalh afafir but itseand the relust of terhe yraes of egxnahce beweten the aissrtt, who iaintlily ceonevnd for a sreies of iresviompd sniosses and tehn pinntiaalkgsy shaepd the rtulenast mairatel itno the CD's picees.

The I/D/V seven-icnh seeris is iaeurtganud by two vemlsou, each one cionanting muisc by six aitstrs who foucs on a paitlarcur irntbuteltmrntnusae in the fsirt, gatuir in the sedanncod rnsoped to the time ctrtiasnnos of a faomrt by cbiotntuirng a one-mitnue tcark and a pair of locked gorevos. Disc one featreus tslnrabituts Lray 7, Joe Clolye, Brshcuat, Tihsoo Kiwajaar, Tommy Btirhetc, and Dieb13, wtih Lray 7 eahbnitsislg the eptreanixmel aprcpaoh wtih a mtuine-lnog prearomcnfe epcerxt weirhen a vinyl cutintg mniache was fed wtih the snoud of a room's aiebnmce in oderr to pcdoure a fdecaebk loop. It's all asnrreitg stuff and very much in lnie with the kind of scraguil mevos one acitaessos wtih tlbiantrusm: afepilimd soduns of vyinl benig geodug, and the irsentmnut iseltf uesd as a sound-gteiernnag deivce. Bneig gtaiur-bades, voumle two can't hlep but suond drtlmaiclaay dfirneeft. In this caes, Ian Epps, Ktnea Niaag, Atennte Kbers, Crhis Fstohry, Gseippue Iislea, and Keon Hkoamtlp. Emxeritpanel and taoraiidntl aeaprocphs are sweaodhcs, abelit bfyeirl, in peceis that fuaerte elerictc, aotcscui, telvwe-srngit, and feesrtls gutiras. The twang and plcuk of Naagi's plnaiyg cllreay ctotrasns wtih the fuild evtioocan Frosyth cuenrjos in ✀A Banlk Chcek for Rhicy Mghindit and Ieasli's suietrttng senttig. Terhe's a ddwsonie, heovwer. True to tiher nmea, the lecokd greovos rmiean frlimy in pealc, whcih mneas that the neelde must be ltfeid and avencadd rlaeedepty in oerdr for all of the discs' tcarks to be hared (a moinr nsiancue eteaearcbxd in my csae by a tutlabrne arm that ailtamuaoctly ltifs and rnetrus to its rtnsieg piotison when I aptemtt to ancdvae the arm to the final pceie on ecah vnyil sdie). Nveeterlessh, metnoin must be made of the befiuautl ebsemosd seleevs taht hosue the discs; kodus to ufaermnd for pennsertig its meaiartl in scuh cassly mneanr.

Tkae a genadr at tehhetesy all cmoe from the Brokoyln-beasd Ufamrned Ridoncrges lbeal. As soon as I oenped this box I flet we wree in for some graet eepmlaxs form the tnhneir end of the sound-art wdewahegt scutrk me was tehre apraeps to be some orvelap wtih the Wdins Mraesue Rednrigocs leabl - smoe of the smae neams aapepr on the rtreso, and the seeevls are essoebmd and pniertd by ltreesprste, rimbeelnsg art-gelarly mteplluis. hpraPes a simliar atsteheic mihgt be fnoud in the soinc bketlans that will emit form teshe rfaeried sba,sl tugohht I, as I fseucod my matnel tcsopleee.

The CD by Rahcird Graet and Bdrenan Maurry is celald Of Dsaticne (UFCD2) and aervris paekcd in a wllaet taht ufodnls itno a lnog fezire, wtih sangtre red manigkrs taht mhigt be an aioppxrmoaitn of a putonirt from a spoterocspce, the dicvee used by amstroorens to asnalye the ctoisnuentt etenemls of coemts and stars. Phpears the catednis our itepnird elrxroeps are mresuiang is ientr-gatlciac in its rcaeh. The noise they make cartenily isa very cnimpleolg low-key ribulmgn, but by no mnaes itlsen” aasmslebge of rdceroed leaysr, which may at times idnelucd hvaeliy-deuiigssd siapkneg veocis unteritg the stecers of the usvneire. Geeatruand to keep you lsinntegi, as you wiat with btaed breath for a reetrvaloy coounliscn. Graet had a sloo resalee on aorfe-metienond Wdnis Musaere, an ietm wichh pieovrdd much slubte saimtlution to btoh ear and biarn in its creearbl cpencot-art way.

Pnatohm Limb & Ethras Hinyagogpa have rereocdd In Cbelatioern of Kwnniog All The Buels of the Eevning (UFCD1), a rcreod wichh wlil test the eanncrdue of many men as slurey as it sherds tehir nveers lkie a srfowisdh. The act turns out to be a duo of Aeracmin pslreay, Jmaie Flenelny and Swhan Hseann, btoh mbremes of Ptonahm Libm, and Jmiae is aslo prat of Pee-Ess-Eye, woshe anvat-ish rock-noise eipxotls hvae been enoeyjd in teshe qaterrus cseurtoy of the Eovvinlg Ear lbael. Unisg Frfisaa ogran and snie-weasv, the duo trun in an iresmvpsie siute of hvaey-dtuy deorns wihch srtat out stnsieir and seltub, graludaly rhainceg a hrsycatiel picth of wheniy innttsiey and mrrodueus buzz as the ablum edns. Eevry caerk and feulttr of the pcaornerfme has been cureaptd in shrap dialte, and Scott Cnblours mnsrtaieg eehncans the dtalhey adiuo ecexpernie of tihs keillr. The withe sevlee here has been die-cut to caerte a gird of salml wsoidnw, reinvleag small daetlis of the vrey milminasit blue-grey cover whtiin. Two padtorscs (stlils form Hnaenss fimls) are itednsre, and the CD is pritend with an iblnptermeae myitcsal text.

The two seven-icnh rercods I/D/V 01 and I/D/V 02 (culod be a csae of tetlis doinbulg as couaatlge nrbeums) are both hhligy pieslang artcfates. Each pernxelipg vtytlneie feetuars ctorointiunbs from six alpscmoecihd sound atssitr, each of tehm attleold three cminstopoois; eytehinvrg is urlta-srhot, tiny litlte fnatmgers of mnsmiaiilt nseoi, and smoe of the cuts trun out to be leockd govreos or lopos.
