An almighty overdriven banjo (Michael Flower) jams with Chris Corsano on percussion. Proper freak-out stuff. The banjo seems a lot more nimble an instrument than the guitar. Which makes for some good spazz. Elemental.
Frank Bretschneider - Rhythm
As clinical, forensic and deft as you'd expect. One of my favourite Frank Bretschneider releases this one. As the title suggests, it's full of beats. Pretty lively and about as accessible as Raster-Noton gets.
Jim O'Rourke seems to be using one of those shitty overdrive guitar pedals fifteen year old kids go to Denmark Street to pick up. They come in lots of different colours and have names like 'hyperdrive'. Despite that it's a fairly good guitar piece from him. Thomas Ankersmit takes his sax on a power-drill drone that I am definitely feeling. I think he edges it. I'd like to see him live now.
Oren Ambarchi - Stacte Motors
Oren Ambarchi attaches motors to a guitar and cymbals to create pretty novel rhythmic noise pieces. The guitar piece is insanely physical and immersive and probably the most interesting thing i've heard this year. If anyone tells you this is 'dad noise' they are full of shit.
Sylvain Chauveau - Nuage
Film score from Sylvain Chauveau. Hit and miss. Orchestral strings and his brand of minimal piano. Distinctive in places, pedestrian in others.

My iBook now carries what is probably the first audioscrobbler sticker ever. Yum.
