Guitar-violin noise duo. Impressively full-sounding, dialed-in, dissonant in interesting ways. The dynamics turn on a dime, and the textural blurring sometimes makes it hard to tell where the guitar ends and the violin begins. Shippy used to play in U.S. Maple (one of the strangest rock bands I've ever heard, I love them), and Cunningham's collaborated with claire rousay and many other experimental musicians. Good noise. RIYL Henry Flynt, Glenn Branca, Zachary James Watkins, Bill Orcutt, faking transmitter failure. Favorites: 1, 2. No words, no FCCs.

1. *(17:27)—Starts soft, really starts cooking about a minute in. The sound dilates as it gets noisier, and there's a feeling of elevation. Atonal shredding, rises gradually, really enters harsh territory halfway in. Ends suddenly.
2. *(5:40)—Nervous and jittery to start. Gets wild and screechy, cartoonishly spastic. Ends cold.
3. (6:34)—Similar start to 2 but turns into staccato riffing. More easygoing.
4. (4:13)—Clean guitar and violin sounds to start. Midway the violin sounds like a stand-up bass. Builds for a bit and cuts off.
