Psychic meltdown of a collaboration between your man from Sunn O))) and Indonesian duo, Senyawa. Often thought that O'Malley does truly great work when he's got someone else to bounce off, as with the Scott Walker, KTL, Atsuo and Oren Ambarchi collaborations from a few years back (not to mention that Sunn itself is the ultimate partnership!), and here Senyawa coax him down some nicely darkened back alleys of the night. It makes sense this was originally written to accompany a piece by choreographer Gisele Vienne (whom O'Malley has previousely worked with via KTL), the six tracks mostly grouped into parts and the whole collection oscillating between the dead air inertia of drone and the movement of improv, underscored in moments by Senyawa's black metal referencing vocals (mainly Atilla!). If there's a dance to this, it likely represents a breakdown. There's a storm a-coming... Oh and I love that this has turned up on iDEAL (Kali Malone, Jay Glass Dubs et al), a label that seems to expand with each release. ANOTHER Swedish label. Say no more.
Additionally, we've five dead stock copies of the incredible KTL live album recorded by Throbbing Gristle in 2007 in store now. Available here
