“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.

Grade: C-

Favorite Track: Swell the Ranks

Second Favorite: Swiss Armor Tank
