Full on over-the-top psychedelic noise guitar assault from Antony Miltons A.M project. With beats!
Eschewing the last vestiges of embarrassment at several years 'lost' to rave culture in the late 90s A.M channels the furious ecstasies of phasing tones and pounding beats through electric guitar lined red hot into an ancient tape recorder to produce a riff driven avant-party album... With its endless driving riffs and noise incursions ascending to ever higher levels of intensity the sudden free falls into sudden deep ambient bliss are like the first glimpses of dawn on a mountain top on acid..
And then the beats kick in again.
A 'wave your arms in the air' boogie noise record? Who would have thought?
I know I say this for like 90% of the stuff I post here, but this shit is awesome. Great experimental guitar tracks that you could even dance to if you were on the right drugs. Snarling grooves on the first half of the album break out into an ambient interlude, a bass-thumper and the absolutely flooring "Sun Rides Sidesaddle." I imagine fans of Fuck Buttons would be into this, though that comparison probably isn't accurate.
Will probably overstep The Goslings as my favorite noise-that-isn't-really-noise album of the year.
This album and others can be purchased from Pseudo Arcana.
