Omar Rodríguez-López and Jeremy Michael Ward
“Omar Rodríguez-López and Jeremy Michael Ward”
***Writer’s Note: I have to tell myself “this isn’t just noise” whenever I listen to this beast of an album. Not many releases intimidate me, but this one does.***
There is no real instrumentation on this release, just manipulation of ambient noises pair with minimal electronic sounds. I have never experienced “music concrète” before (and probably won’t again), but it was interesting to say the least – it’s good to challenge your boundaries.
Favorite Track: Swell the Ranks
Second Favorite: Swiss Armor Tank
