Boomkat Product Review:
Recorded in correspondence between Anla Courtis (of Buenos Aires-based noise outfit Reynols) and Aaron Moore (of Brooklyn's Volcano The Bear) this record is a remarkably warm, airy piece of work. The illusion of 'Progreso = Ropes Gro' all taking place in a single room is a tangibly convincing one, combining meandering guitar with clunking semi-tuned percussion and what's sounds like an aviary's worth of tweeting birds. More mysterious, electronic excursions arise too however, such as the sustaining piano clamour of 'Bluifedls = I Feed Bulls', which is filtered and eroded away in beautiful but altogether haunting ways, eventually warping into a tide of swelling distortion and feedback. There's a tremendously versatile feel to all this, and for every moment of confrontational unpleasantness there's another that reintroduces you to the more subtle, eloquent work these two highly experienced artists are capable of. The final track, 'Gigngante = Anti Egg' is a departure all on its own, occupying seven-and-a-half minutes of feverish noise hysteria with sqealing guitars and drums lifted straight out of a particularly explosive psych-rock LP. Excellent.
