pan sonic / keiji haino - Shall I Download A Blackhole And Offer It To You
This is the documentation of a meeting between two of extreme music's most feared and revered operators. Both factions have entirely different approaches to sound construction, but share a solitary and radioactive piece of earth where unhinged yet articulate vocal acrobatics and multi instrumentalist prowess can converse with focussed blasts of electronic noise and tectonic shifting subbass. If you haven't checked the Wire's brilliant review of this album, then do so, because you'd realise why we're inclined to agree with Keith Moliné, as Haino undeniably manages to dominate this show with a purely cathartic display of guttural utterances and ancient spirits of darkness evacuated from the recesses of his imagination. The set is intensified and endlessly expanded by Pan Sonic's low end turbulence and subliminal electronics, but the moments of shock and awe are largely delivered by Haino's unpredictable outbursts and arcane instrumentation. The pair of acts work with an enthralling intuition, unravelling from extended passages of improvisation to solitary moments of psychedelic exploration to take heavier listeners on a trip they won't forget any time soon, while lighter eared noobs will be introduced to something remarkably alien and magical. If you need any more persuasion, the spot gloss double fold digipak housing was designed by Steven O'Malley, and looks freakin' gorgeous. One you need - Essential Purchase!
