"Massively heavy two-header from contemporary soundists Greg Kelley and Jason Lescalleet on Lescalleet's own label: here Kelley uses Realistic Concertmate MG-1, Roland RE-20 Space Echo, Electro-Harmonix Frequency Analyzer and trumpet, Lescalleet uses tapes, turntables, amplified objects and Dell XPS. The sound is massively dense, slow-moving, with textures of metal and rust compacted into massive, juddering heavy meta drones that combine the phantom creepy-crawling feel of a Folke Rabe with the eroto-Industrial body stimulation of classic Neubauten and the disorientating deep/multidimensional production style of a Peter 'Sleazy' Christopherson.
“La Conversacion” is particularly dazzling, with the kind of wailing, speaking in tongues trumpet work of a Donald Ayler mutated to the point of cries of pain intercepted by omming muezzin calls and the kind of fluttering/abysmal drone work that sounds like a swarm of flies buzzing in the heart of hollow planets. Lescalleet's recent collaboration with Graham Lambkin was one of the highlights of his catalogue and this stands shoulder to shoulder with it while obliterating alla the personal detail of Photographs in favour of obsessively annihilating electricity.
Totally fantastic and highly recommended."
