Wolf Eyes – Always Wrong Reviewed

Experimental noise group Wolf Eyes has their latest effort reviewed.

“Cellar” starts the album out by shedding the processed vocals that were integral to earlier Wolf Eyes releases in favor of a snotty, almost punk sounding snarl before letting the electronic waste and reeds tear everything asunder. This is Wolf Eyes in an even more ferocious mode than anything from Human Animal. At the other end of the album, the group creates a new kind of drift for themselves by incorporating a droning harmonica on “Droll/Cut The Dog” that wouldn’t sound out of place in an Ennio Morricone soundtrack except for the sinister ramblings that blanket the composition.

Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Merzbow – Dead Leaves
Dead Leaves title may suggest an organic, melancholy and doomy outlook but the three tracks inside are quite the opposite- with each been a great long, jittering and shifting electro noise attacks which are splattered here and there with melodic hints, rhythmic chugs and sonic chops.

Matmos – The West
This is a reissue of 98’s third album from the often abstract and odd sound obsessed electrionca duo of Matmos. With the whole album finding the pair in a surprisingly approachable, Organic and harmonic mood- with little of the ‘look how clever we are’ edge to the work that sadly permeates much of the pairs work.

Andrey Kiritchenko – Misterrious
Andrey Kiritchenko is a fairly prolific Ukrainian based musician who since 2001 has released over 20 albums- which have seen him dip his sonic toe in the genres such as: electrionca, folk, electro acoustic & drone works. Misterrious finds him offering up a collection of atmospheric often fragile yet harmonic piano pieces; that are lined with field recording elements and touches of guitar, glockenspiel, mouth harmonica, auto-harp, Tibetan bowls.
