The recording itself consists of two tracks and gloriously stretches the length of the format (about 20 minutes or so). “The Roux” is the first and it’s an unforgettable ride, pinning itself between distortion and drone and lunging out to space, where floating is a way of life. A strange little riff that takes a pseudo-break-from-”Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” turn morphs, over a minute or two, from a spare “exercise” into a fluttering, foamy wash of tunes and tones, tiny stabs of electricity escaping its center with loud BINGs and BANGs and a static crackle or two. Maybe this music is best experienced at night; I sure as shit can’t imagine it during the day, what with the Ulaan Khol icebergs solidifying and the prog-isms tripping out each and every sense.

“Tree Years” is about a dead tree that, when it was placed in front of a member of Comoros’ house two years ago, already was dead, and, as the narrator explains, it’s twice as dead now. I didn’t know how songs without lyrics could be written about something specific (that might have started with Captain Beefheart) until I heard this song, as it branches out in several directions and throws down burly six-string-slashing roots. A sense of menace weaves around the room like a DVD power-save screen icon, baring its teeth now and again as a delicate, minimal guitar figure switches from tactile electric plucking to ardent, fever-dream Striders (i.e.: loud swishes of faded sound) seamlessly. Provocative to say the least, and so much more stimulating than you’ve been led to believe guitar-dro’ can be by the folks that can’t imprint themselves on the brain-cock the way Comoros can.
