Wolf Eyes & Double Leopards cs : Heavy Tapes
Nice slice from these underground noise all-stars. While everything grows and shifts organically, the sound itself is cold and mechanical, a hunk of technological waste, drifting ever deeper into endless space. Some of Wolf Eyes most zoned improv pulsates beneath Double Leopards' sheets of drone, and the result is both bleakly minimal and brilliantly psychedelic. When the time is right, the threat emerges and the proceedings gain an eery power. The floating detritus seems to be awake, like HAL's autistic brother, receiving transmissions long thought to be lost, decayed by age and distance. I heard from the mouth of Olson himself that these guys and gals wanna jam again, so let's hope this is just a taste of things to come, and maybe I can get myself a copy next time round. And on a related note...
Double Leopards : A Hole is True : Troubleman Unlimited
Upon listening to Double Leopards newest, I'm thinking it's the harsher more varied companion to Out of One, Through one and To One's subtle might. Might be their most overwhelming offering yet. Hoo-boy am I feeling this one.
