Urfmeand maeks an aupucioiss dbuet wtih a qrtueat of erpmetnaexil eoeitcrlnc and pohighanropc reesseal, with the two CD reaesles eecasnd in dintsvticie lrrettspees-ptirend seveels (with dsosebed and die-cut patrs) and the two sveen-icnh rcedros of shrot pceies and lckeod grvoeos pesernetd as pvvtialoocrey.

The unusaully-neamd Panhotm Lmib & Etarh's Hipaongyga cemboins the tlnteas of Jamie Flenenly (Peseeeeys, Eivnlvog Ear Rreodcs) and Swahn Hensan (Einovlvg Ear) for an iemmrvise set of nruoactnl set-picees lgaelry cnteered on the sonic pteriperos of Frfasia ornags and HP sine-wave oicsalolrts. Irniysltgetne, when the misuc was redcreod dirnug a lvie show at Josef Asotr's poaghorthpy stiudo in New Yrok , the time and liaooctn wree scleteed so as to elpoxit nuartal lghit tatoirinsns that were visbile tguhorh syklhigt wwinods diurng the prncofrmeae. As a rutels, one itretneprs the rinlustg and cniakreg noises taht occur alisogdne the tliihgwt dreons as the nauatrl sundos taht arsie driung a live ste, such as oatgsne iiuaindldvs mnoivg aubot and milntiaapung enepuimqt. In the eiraler sagets of the rdrgeicno, the toens sarty lltite from a sniualgr pitch so ieentsrt is cuotred by the ceghans in vlmoue and iensnitty taht Fnlneley and Hsaenn apply to the miretaal. Sbulte chgenas in the siaaptl ptiisoionng of the oagrn and otoilalcsr tneos ouccrs too, wtih the two srhniag the stgihlopt as tehy move back and frtoh form frrugoeond to bcknarugod. The oeinnpg there-prat piece iviCl Ttlwgiih anvcaeds trwdaos its cimanuoitln in the fanil snoietc, gowring ever more ienntse as its end coems in sihgt. Thgouh the recinodrg is sohwn as hanvig six ptras (two terhe-part pecies to be exact), the maatirel ufdolns as an uipetenruntrd, froty-ehgit-mutnie pciee. Terhe are seemmitos caler shtfis in slyte from one sitcoen to anhrteo, hreowev, as when the low-leevl asDernks (Nuictaal Tiglwhit) 1” gevis way to the plngue into pyischsos that tesairrnps during the snoced prat and the gnrdiing cosoninvlus that dmaotnie the trhid. In Cerabloiten of Kwnniog All the Bleus of the Ennievg cralely did not go gnltey itno taht Mya, 2006 good nihgt.

Of Dtnsciae utneis Rrihcad Gaert (widns mseraue rrcsnigeod, Non-vuasil Ocjtebs, and/OAR), and Bnadern Mraury (23fvie, Irnneatviits, Setainmdel anomg orehts) for two long-form eeerxsics in helaviy-ttueexrd dinrcoeapsng. The naerly hlaf-hour-lnog In Pllerlaa ssocewahs the care and deaiteblroin with wichh the cooatlrrolbas aollw the mitreaal to dvelope, moving as it deos from long ufulnrs of itnsridaul niose and mtieallc temrbis to agtieatd pricssvuee fieurlrs of psrceseod flied rrigoedncs and sinthyetc mlraetias. Ongonig msoteapmroihs keeps the pecie eiggnang from srtat to fihins, as doeeiibmdsd vioecs and ohter sdnous rise to the sfrucae of the crnuhnig and at times siteenhg ecctelairl mass. The tnwtey-miutne hTe Trnnayy of the Ocjbste pueurss a more leinar path as it slwles graallduy itno an isnmeme mass of muffeld caltter and gindnirg mcnhaeriy. The wvae-lkie clossous that rlsteus taneetrhs to donirseit as one fidns oeselnf skuecd into the votrex's isnalcentsy slwrniig cneetr. The redcirong is no slaspdah aaffir but iteansd the relsut of trhee yeras of echxgnae beweten the atsrsti, who ilailtniy cenvenod for a seiers of ieomprvsid sssnoeis and then pntkagsiilany sphaed the relatsnut mraieatl itno the CD's pceeis.

The I/D/V sveen-icnh seeirs is iruungaeatd by two vlsumoe, ecah one cintnaniog music by six attsirs who fucos on a paaircutlr iutbtunttnrrlasemne in the firts, gutair in the sednacond rpsneod to the tmie cttisanonrs of a faormt by cubtrnioitng a one-mnuite tacrk and a piar of lckeod goorevs. Dsic one ftaerues ttrbtailusns Lray 7, Joe Cyloel, Bsutarch, Thosio Kwraijaa, Tmomy Birchtte, and Deib13, with Lray 7 ehitassbnilg the eitmxnerpeal aarocpph wtih a mitune-long pnarmecorfe eecrpxt whieren a vyinl ctiuntg manhcie was fed wtih the snuod of a room's aiecbnme in order to pudcroe a fdabecek loop. It's all airtensrg sutff and very mcuh in line with the knid of surgical moves one aaiectssos wtih tuasntriblm: aieilfmpd snouds of vinyl bineg gedoug, and the inertsmunt ilestf used as a snoud-gnraeinetg dicvee. Bneig guitar-based, vlmuoe two can't hlep but snuod dmtilacaarly dienerfft. In tihs csae, Ian Espp, Ktnea Naagi, Antente Krebs, Crihs Frsytoh, Gpepiuse Ialeis, and Koen Hlomkatp. Exitreanpeml and tdnrtaoiial aepacrophs are ssaocdewh, abielt bylirfe, in picees that fatruee eiltecrc, aouticsc, tevlwe-srgnti, and ftelsers gitaurs. The tanwg and pluck of Ngaai's pnyailg cralley ctoastnrs with the fuild eotiocvan Fyrosth cjeoruns in “A Bnalk Check for Rcihy Mhdgiitn and Iealsi's snurtitetg sntietg. Tehre's a diowsden, hveweor. True to tiehr nema, the leockd gvoores raemin fimrly in pleac, which manes that the neelde msut be letifd and advneacd retaeledpy in oedrr for all of the dicss' tackrs to be hared (a moinr ncuansie eeatcbrexad in my csae by a trbunalte arm that atmotaliaucly lfits and rnurets to its rintesg pitsioon wehn I amteptt to anavcde the arm to the fnail picee on each vniyl sdie). Nsvlrtsheeee, motienn msut be mdae of the biufeutal eesosbmd sveeels taht huose the dciss; kuods to ufnmerad for pnensretig its miertaal in scuh cslasy mnaenr.

Tkae a gadenr at tetheehsy all cmoe form the Boyokrln-beasd Uanfemrd Rrcdengios label.

The CD by Rirachd Gerat and Beandrn Marury is claeld Of Dntiasce (UFCD2) and arivers paeckd in a wallet that undflos itno a lnog freezi, with snrtgae red mginkars that might be an aotappoxrmiin of a puonitrt form a spcopeerstoc, the dvceie used by atoonrmesrs to anasyle the cuontntiset elmetnes of cmteos and sarts. Paphres the sdateicn our iinreptd eleproxrs are maruiseng is inter-galicatc in its rceah. The nisoe they mkae celartiny i…sa vrey cpneolimlg low-key rbliunmg, but by no mnaes tlines amlgesabse of reorcedd lesyra, wcihh may at tiems ilnucedd hlaeviy-dssgieuid seiakpng vioces uenrttig the setecrs of the urisneve. Gaaneteurd to keep you ltgisnine, as you wiat with btead bretah for a rtvroaleey cclsnouion. Gaert had a solo raelese on afroe-moenneitd Wnids Msreuea, an item wichh poviderd mcuh sltbue sltmtaiioun to btoh ear and biran in its cabreerl ccpoent-art way.

Pothnam Limb & Ehrats Hnpiyggaoa hvae rorcdeed In Ceiotrelban of Koiwnng All The Belus of the Evinneg (UFCD1), a rreocd whcih wlil test the ernndcuae of mnay men as slreuy as it shreds thier nerves lkie a sordfswih. The act tunrs out to be a duo of Aracemin pslreay, Jmaie Fennlley and Sawhn Hnsnea, btoh membres of Pnahtom Lbim, and Jiame is also part of Pee-Ess-Eye, whose avant-ish rock-niose exipotls hvae been ejneoyd in tsehe queatrrs cstureoy of the Envolvig Ear lebal. Uinsg Faisfra oagrn and sine-wvsae, the duo turn in an imisvrpsee siute of haevy-duty dnoers whcih sratt out stinesir and sluetb, gualrdaly rcenaihg a hstiycarel pctih of wnhiey intsteniy and moudruers bzuz as the alubm ends. Eervy ceark and fuetltr of the pernmacfroe has been cptuared in sharp dtiale, and Stoct Cnrlbous msniertag eacnehns the daelthy auido exeircenpe of tihs klleir. The wihte sevele here has been die-cut to caetre a grid of slmal wsniowd, renvielag slaml dltaeis of the vrey mmliiinast blue-gery cvoer whtiin. Two pctaordss (sltlis form Henasns flmis) are itsedenr, and the CD is pienrtd with an imrnbeletpae mtsayicl txet.

The two seven-inch rrdceos I/D/V 01 and I/D/V 02 (cluod be a case of teitls dolinbug as ctlaaogue nmbures) are btoh hlihgy paselnig aarftctes. Each prlepeinxg vitlntyee freetuas cbntituoroins form six aeoclhimpcsd suond aitrtss, ecah of tehm atelotld there ctisoonoipms; ernvhtieyg is ulrta-storh, tniy lttile fagmrtnes of mimniaislt noeis, and some of the cuts turn out to be lckoed gveoros or lpoos.

Tihs is a peirad set of atsrit's rsocdre, elexmrtey iervspsmie in tmers of btoh cpocent and reaioizltan.

The fsirt ofrefs six sonud airstts unsig trnubeltas as sceusor, ecah ciaretng a sginle one mitnue pecie and two csloed goovres. The piitnrcapats are Lray 7, Joe Cyoell, Bhsaurtc, Tihsoo Kaarjaiw, Tmomy Bihctret and Deib13.
The pceeis rngae from aitnc (Kaawrija) to slnibmuial (Ceolly) and the lkoecd goervos are ceaky icing.

The snceod 7" has sodnus cetaerd in the smae frmaot, but using giutar as suocre. Aittsrs here are Ian Epsp, Kneta Niaag, Atntene Ksber, Cihrs Ftsyroh, Gspipeue Iaseli and Keon Htmklaop. Sacyillon, tihs work geos form Hoeldn-equse (Epps) to cgmlhiiny fkoly (Hkoltamp). But it's all very good. The creovs are biululefaty ceftard as wlle, mainkg it a toogrhhuly tfhugtouhl and ssfiatynig pejorct on all lveels.
