Tetragrammaton - Elegy for Native Tongues
« on: June 16, 2009, 09:58:22 PM »
I came across this album the other day and was very intruiged by the descriptions and reviews: http://www.subvalent.com/tetragrammaton-elegy-for-native-tongues/

It sounds pretty great on paper (almost too great), so I was just wondering if anyone had heard it yet, or even heard of it? Worth a punt?

In short:

“Heavy, ominous psychedelic free-improv from Tokyo, Japan."

Never heard (of) them but after your mention and these two reviews I seriously might have to check this out-

Aye. I generally respect digitalis, so them absolutely raving about it like that means that I'm going to take a chance on this as soon as I have enough $$$'s spare in my paypal account.

I re-read the reviews and decided I really wanted to hear this so.... Ordered! I'll report back.

This arrived on Tuesday. I've just been listening to the first disc, which is the 4-track recordings, and it is indeed good. Lots of free-form, largely acoustic-style, multi-instrumental percussive clattering and droning. Quite listenable, and it flows very nicely. Not so much of the ferocious big-band freakouts I was perhaps expecting, but we shall see what the live disc holds...
