Boomkat Product Review:
Engrossing slab from the Argentinian guitarist and Brooklyn-based British drummer swapping their usual kit for anything from grand pianos and balaphons to metal lampshades and wooden staircases.
'Bring Us Some Honest Food' is the processed document of Courtis & Moore's congregation at The Fish Factory, London, on 22nd March, 2014. The A-side breaks down to three shorter pieces "blended" by Aaron Moore in Brooklyn, breaking unique new ground between the gloaming, out-of-body avant-rock extraction, 'Portions Of Honesty'; the chamber-like meld of blackened synth strokes with acoustic guitar in 'The Honest Waitress'; and amorphous, space-shaping concrète recalling Jim O'Rourke' or Smegmas farthest in 'Honest Pork Pie'.
In the hands of Alan Courtis back in Buenos Aires on the B-side, 'Dishonest Desert' patiently unravels a side-long scape of lower case, haptic improvisations giving way to chiming texturhythms and reversed tape loops before rolling tribal drums, lonely sax and agitated cello usher in a brooding climax, all rent in the trippiest, pensile mixdown.
