(Ergot - 005) LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Ian McColm and David Shapiro coax oblique shades of damaged Frippertronic drone from extended guitar rigs and render them across three deliberate structured improvisations on their forty-four-minute LP. Meticulously crafted loops comprise the phonetic basis of Nagual’s vocabulary, with clusters of decayed piano and spluttering ARP seamlessly shifting in and out of coherence, while deep tones expand across the stereo field. The muscular tear of side A crescendos into a dexterous burst of McColm’s machine-gun percussion (worthy of his years studying under Pharoah Sanders drummer Billy Hart); and side B unfurls with the patient serenity of music’s eternal theater.
