Latest cassette on Hangover Central Station
The hardest working man in show/no-business is back with another killer set of tripped-out guitar workouts that are better than near anyone else's tripped-out guitar workouts. I wouldn't so much say Christensen is a renaissance man, but there are a few different versions of himself out there, and on Circular Ruins he's out of New Haven and in the scorched earth late 80s NZ underground, channeling the ragged glory of Pin Group and the deconstructive surge of the Dead C. Obvious kinship with K-Group in parts, but what i love most about Christensen's music is that he always returns to a songwriting centre, the noise and swirl a texture always in service to the song. And it's these songs he never seems to run dry of. Long may it be the case. Limited as always.
