Dark and electronics-laden free jazz that brings a new ominous meaning to the "Lords" name. This is the latest incarnation of Romus' free jazz band, taking a noisier and more experimental turn.
For this kind of stuff packed in a hyper, crazed, Naked City kind of package, see The Abstractions.
Rent Romus -- sax, voice, accordion
CJ Borosque -- no-input analog fx pedals
Philip Evertt -- drums, autoharp, electronics
Ray Schaeffer -- bass (6 string fretless electric)
1- Intense pounding drums over probling, slow sax. Cooldown ending.
2- Tumult: A fairly fast, noisy outpouring; calms down but stays noisy
3- Crazy ominous echoing of sax and el.bass, opens with a cartoony cackling voice
4- Glitchy sax-less piece featuring accordion(!) in foreboding long tones and fast scribbly whistles.
5- Casual sauntering sax under dark electronics; some near-verbal voice babble
6- Flying sax scribbles, a building of clutter. Less dense than other tracks but still quite noisy.
7- Industrial noisy falling-apart clamor. Careening sax echoes.
8- Ominous chimes all glitched up. Toneful two-sax melody (Romus playing both saxes at once), dark.
9- Hissy electronic glitches, calm sax. Hovering.
