While the prolific duo of John Hegre and Lasse Marhaug is mostly known for its taxing brand of harsh noise and glitch-happy deconstructions, this 2007 release on Czech label Purple Soil proves to be much more affable than their past works would have suggested. Sure, there is an electronic storm of a piece somewhere on here that's guaranteed to have you jumping for the volume knob, and the first track is basically little more than an old medical report apparently found on vinyl, but the real attraction here is to be found on the tracks which rely on a strangely western-tinged blend of guitar noise. The drawn-out squalls and piercing feedback become sorrowful ballads for desert sunrises and midnight prairies, the sort better seen when the whiskey kicks in. Moments of grace in the middle of nowhere.

Format: CD, multi-paneled booklet
