james plotkin & paal nilssen-love - Death Rattle
F****k, this is good: perplexingly talented Norwegian percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love teams up with avant-metal overlord James Plotkin for a "role-reversal" of the traditional drum-and-guitar set-up. Plotkin rightly didn't dare try and match the infernal chaos of Paal's drums, instead providing repetitive melodic hooks and harmonic squall that he could batter against. The result is four extended pieces of complicated rhythmelolodic sequences entangled with some of the lushest, free drumming you'll hear this year, featuring both players catalysing and reacting with each other in the most attuned, beautifully mind-expanding manner imaginable, flexing out from interstellar jazz to crushing metal and back again. We won't bang on; it's every bit as good as the line-up looks, and then some.
