Sandy Ewen / Damon Smith / Weasel Walter: Untitled
The trio of SANDY EWEN (guitar), DAMON SMITH (bass) and WEASEL WALTER (drums) issues forth a 78-minute CD containing nothing short of alien technique and structural disruption.
The music offers complete modernist abstraction with teeth and urgency. It is the sound of extreme polyphony and counterpoint, veering radically from density to space, pinprick to roar within instants.
The eight pieces here range from 4 to 17 minutes in length and each retain their own tight focus. There are no lulls. There is maximum variation. Play it loud and prepare to get weird.
