Album Review

Reviewed 2007-10-29 
Kleier kind of fits in a "new classical" category but since he plays guitar, he's got an unavoidable rock edge. These are short pieces full of distortion and effects and some angular melody lines. A bit like the old Henry Kaiser/Fred Frith stuff, if I'm remembering those recordings correctly.

1- Echoey cavern
2- Big glorious shredding. In honor of Sonny Sharrock, I'd guess
3- Chiming Indonesian(?) pulse, midtempo, could be faster
4- Rhythmic and destructive. Yeah!
5- Country-like stomp, short.
9- Midlevel clanging. Easygoing, a bit droney
