Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2007-01-20 
Nice industrial (in the classic sense) pounding on a wide variety of percussion and found objects (check the liner notes for an entertaining list). Must have been fun to make. Organic sounding, sometimes menacing, sometimes tribal, always musical even if there's no tuned instruments. (OK there's a bass guitar and bass banjo listed but darned if I can hear them...) No vocals, no FCCs, but some tracks good to fuck to.

1.quiet fade-in, brief quiet "whistle"
+2.syncopated beats over low drum boom. Hypnotic
3.Muted distant gongs, boomy drums (as if recorded through a wall), soundscape, short
4.Insistant. This one has the bass guitar! The 1-2 beat is trying to my ears. It gets a little better near the end.
5.Another brief quiet bassy etherial soundscape
+6.groovy beat, trippy sounds
+7.Ha ha ha the drums of doom! Missionaries beware! Beat dissapears during last 40 minutes.
8.A bit too slow, too plodding
+9.minimal epic. Quiet start, builds with some syncopation, some vocal sounds? Beat falls apart, re-synthesises. "fades" out. All changes slow.
+10.Bells/gongs then upbeat drum circle
