(Fat Cat)

Another good one in the split 12″ series by this label. Christian Fennesz shows his usual care in destroying “normal” sounds without exaggerating, so that you can mantain a glimpse of the original source in your head and follow it, as the day comes to an end. Very evocative, sometimes tender, but also disturbing in its tentative, deconstructive way. Robert Hampson, back to his old self, presents a long static track in which guitar, cymbals and piano frame through a powerbook let rise a droning vibration, rarely interrupted and instead complemented by some electric pulse or by fragments of extraneous noise. Main fans will love it of course. Both sides of the 12″ are excellent and I urge you to listen.
