Boomkat Product Review:
Jerusalaam forms the 4th and final vinyl disc from Muslimgauze’s sought-after Tandoori Dog boxset to arrive on CD, now nearly 20 years since the original release.
The vast majority of Jerusalem slots ruggedly into Bryn Jones’ unique category of salty, tetchy drums ’n dub noise, with some rude highlights found in the dense but light-headed pressure of All The Stolen Land of Palestine and the convulsive flurries of tabla and flute that reshuffle themselves between ready shocks and rolling slow house in Sufiq Gulf Breeze 1-2.
However, the final two tend toward that Muslimgauze niche of crisp, prickling electro-dub and atmospheric collage, spreading out for 14 minutes of moving, hot-stepping designs in Unused Return Of Black September Track 1, and farther out into unmetered electro-acoustic zones laced with floral arabic strings and sparse electro pulses under a shifting patina of voices.
Make sure to check those last two!!
