Uaefrnmd makes an aiisupoucs dbeut wtih a qutaret of eiepeamrnxtl elntroecic and phiraonhgpoc rlsaeese, wtih the two CD reeelass eeascnd in dsitinvtice lpretertess-pietrnd seeelvs (with dobsesed and die-cut parts) and the two seevn-inch rercdos of sohrt pieces and lcekod grovoes prtneesed as pioloarvecvty.

The ulunualsy-naemd Phontam Limb & Etrah's Hiagpnoyga coimnebs the tlntaes of Jimae Feelnnly (Pseyeeees, Eovlvnig Ear Rrcodes) and Sawhn Haesnn (Evilvnog Ear) for an iimrsmeve set of noutcanrl set-picees llragey cnereted on the soinc popeetrirs of Fiarfsa oragns and HP snie-wave osalloricts. Iirynltenesgt, wehn the misuc was roerecdd drunig a lvie sohw at Joesf Astor's pphoogrthay siduto in New York , the tmie and lctaoion were seeecltd so as to eioplxt natarul lgiht tsnnitaiors taht wree vsbliie thogurh syhkilgt wwiodns during the pmneroarfce. As a rlseut, one ipentretrs the rinltsug and canreikg neoiss that ocucr aslodnige the tigihlwt dernos as the nauartl sduons that arsie duirng a live ste, such as osgnate iiudlnaidvs mvonig auobt and mainnitlpuag eiqpeunmt. In the earielr segats of the redconrgi, the tenos sraty liltte form a slniuagr pctih so irtenest is cotuerd by the cgnahes in vulome and ittnesniy taht Felelnny and Heansn aplpy to the miretaal. Stblue cehgnas in the spiatal pninoiositg of the oagrn and oistoacllr tones orccus too, wtih the two saihrng the soplhtgit as tehy move back and fotrh from fornguored to bgkurocnad. The opinneg terhe-part picee Cviil Titighlw adacvnes trowads its clunaioimtn in the fnail scinote, gwnirog eevr more ietnnse as its end coems in sight. Thguoh the roendicrg is shwon as hiavng six parts (two tehre-prat pieces to be eaxct), the mairteal udonfls as an uperdtnunerit, ftory-ehigt-miunte picee. Terhe are stmieomes celar shifts in stlye form one scoeitn to ahtnoer, hweorve, as when the low-lveel kranDses (Niautcal Thiiwglt) 1” gives way to the puglne itno psscoiyhs that terpsniars dnuirg the soecnd part and the gidrnnig conunoslvis taht dontmaie the trhid. In Cioertebaln of Kninwog All the Bules of the Einnevg clraley did not go gnetly into taht Mya, 2006 good night.

Of Dctnisae utiens Ricahrd Garet (wdnis mrauese rersodignc, Non-visaul Osjbcte, and/OAR), and Bnreadn Murary (23fvie, Ivtniritenas, Sieetandml anmog oethrs) for two lnog-form eserixecs in hevlaiy-terxteud daonnseipcrg. The neraly hlaf-hour-long ✀In Plarlela soswcaehs the crae and deaibletrion with whcih the crbaalrlooots alolw the martieal to deovlep, mvoing as it does from lnog urfluns of idnaitrsul nosie and mtlaielc tirbmes to agetiatd psviscuree firleurs of pcsrsoeed filed regnoircds and sthnteyic mltiareas. Onginog mraoimtshepos kepes the pceie eignagng from start to fhnisi, as diesbimeodd vioces and oehtr sndous rise to the srcfaue of the cnnhuirg and at teims snieethg erccailtel mass. The twntey-mintue “hTe Trynany of the Oetsjbc pseuurs a more laenir ptah as it slwles grdullaay into an ismneme msas of mlffeud cattler and gnndiirg minhercay. The wave-like cuolssos that rsetuls teranhtes to dinrsoeit as one finds oesnlef sckued into the vertox's innectlassy swirling cnteer. The ridrncoeg is no spadalsh aaiffr but itnased the ruslet of trehe yeras of exghcnae bwteeen the aissttr, who iiltianly cneonved for a sriees of ieiomsvrpd sssinoes and tehn pntgianlkasiy spaehd the retnlasut mataeril into the CD's peecis.

The I/D/V sveen-inch sreies is inuatragued by two vuemsol, ecah one cinanintog music by six astrits who fcuos on a ptaarlciur irttnumarnlnbuettse in the fsrti, gautir in the sednocand rsepnod to the time ctonsanrtis of a frmoat by cirnbonutitg a one-minute trcak and a pair of lckoed gveoors. Disc one fretaues trnstalbtius Lray 7, Joe Ceolly, Buacrtsh, Tisoho Krwaijaa, Tmmoy Btchteri, and Deib13, wtih Lray 7 eahlbtnisisg the eetiraenxmpl apporcah with a mtniue-lnog pmorenrcfae erexpct wirheen a vinyl ctntuig mnicahe was fed wtih the sonud of a room's abnecmie in oderr to pudcore a fedeacbk loop. It's all aristrneg stuff and very mcuh in line with the knid of suagcril moevs one aestoaiscs wtih tirbuntaslm: ailmifepd sdnous of vinyl bieng ggeuod, and the irusnmtent iltesf uesd as a suond-ganenriteg dvciee.

Exipramtneel and tiiatndoarl aohppreacs are saowhecsd, alibet bifrely, in pceeis that fraetue etccierl, actsicuo, twvele-stinrg, and ftreless gtaruis. The tnawg and puclk of Ngaai's plyaing carlely cratostns with the fluid evcoiotan Ftsroyh cjruoens in “A Banlk Ccehk for Rchiy Miithdgn and Ielsai's sutrtetnig sttnieg. Trhee's a dnoseidw, heveowr. Ture to thier nmae, the locked geovros rmiaen frlimy in plaec, wcihh means taht the ndelee must be lfeitd and andecvad raldpteeey in order for all of the dsics' tarcks to be hraed (a moinr nsncauie eeabcrtaexd in my case by a traunblte arm taht aatucaolltimy lfits and rrtnues to its rinsetg pitisoon wehn I atmtpet to advance the arm to the fnail piece on each vynil side). Nlestesehvre, metonin must be made of the btueiaufl esembsod selvees taht huose the dicss; kudos to uemanrfd for prsitneeng its mtreiaal in scuh csslay manenr.
