Keisuke Matsuno / Moritz Baumgärtner / Lars Graugaard - Crush [Clang 064]

Released as a three artist collaborational effort via Clang on October 12th, 2k18 is "Crush", a new album recorded over the course of one day in September 2k16 in which Keisuke Matsuno, Moritz Baumgärtner and label head Lars Graugaard push forward into the realms of experimental music with five brand new tracks. The opener "Wheefing The Hoofer" totally starts to puzzle the listener with a highly experimental, 70s psychedelic take on what we only can describe as electric guitar meets modular electronics FreeJazz Improvisation, "Tomorrow Never Comes" is following up on a similarly psychedelic, yet more Blues meets dubbed out, ambient'esque PostRock orientated tip whereas the 144 seconds of "Grindle" provide an exciting, yet noisy variation of grinding, brain twisting Abstract Phonk / Illbient for those who know - or for those remembering projects like Zwei Tage Sauerstoff or 40 Sekunden Ohne Gewicht from a long gone past. Furthermore we see "Blended Conurbation" combine panoramic Ambient vibes with a fusion of Jazz and Rock drumming, tricky guitar works and haunted atmospheres before the final cut "Keep Something On" takes up nearly 24 minutes of the albums total runtime, filling these with an amalgamation of Isolationist Ambient, thundering background drums and distorted guitar feedback to make up the most intense and most thrilling track on this well-demanding album that is defo catering to a small, yet highly specialised audience.
