Two staples of the NZ underground combine in typically inventive fashion for this double 10" presentation of maladjusted blues and folk digressionals constructed from traditional song pulled from many corners of ye olde margins. Irish folk, Mississippi hill country blues, klezmer and, remarkably, German folk dance are recast through the lens of DIY sensibility, creating associative threads that make more sense than you might think. And, really, it's most surprising that such an undertaking hasn't occurred before now, given the influence of traditional folk musics on contemporary underground practice, be that Enhet For Fri Musik, Blod, Luster or closer to home, fellow Antipodeans, Warm Currency. The results are perfectly scrappy, ten loosely structured interpretations recorded in playful fashion, where much tape hiss and odd interjections of electronic swirl and gloop lend the whole set a ghostly, uncanny quality. Traditional song this may be, but there's little conventional about these reworkings, making them feel not so much part of a distant past but sent from another dimension where everything is set just off to the side, like memories you can't quite remember.
