"There are records to be chomped, jammed, ripped, even, blasted, but Derek Bailey wondered if there wasnt something less to listening. The attack guitar god wondered if listeners stopped doing the dishes when they put on a record, how could that be, did they just sit and stare? Ones gotta keep the oculars occupied, tripped out record cover to look at, I guess. A music video seems to do quite nicely. Max Eilbacher makes tons of videos, hell probably make a video for this release. Eilbacher also seems to be quite down with just sitting and starring though, maybe he doesnt have to do dishes because he has the visual in his minds eye. Maybe the scatter is only subtle because it bunches its individual pieces so closely together, so that the aforementioned "scatter" refracts and expands so fast, that it creates a vast visual array of sound, de-connecting and connecting with the listener as each surprising decision unfolds into the next, from computer sequences, to modular synth flappery, to deconstructed processed samples. The music itself is staring music, we get that, but why? What makes one record dish washer worthy and another so leveling that you dip into your own little world and stare at your receiver hoping it could explain what youre seeing and hearing, but it cant and neither can Max Eilbacher. A music video for the sounds would probably be helpful, but the imagination and lack of dishes in your hand are your best bet. Art by Eilbacher and Kodi Fabricant. Catch Max in Horse Lords, Matmos, and formerly in Teeth Mountain and Needle Gun, dude STAYS busy, his previous release is on Spectrum Spools, too boot!" - Fogged.
