Since more Matthew Bower material was requested in the wake of my post of Hototogisu's debut, here's one of my favorites of his sprawling discography, albeit one which sits at a decided right angle to his usual M.O.. "Splat!" was issued as part of Jackie-O Motherfucker's U Sound archive series and unfurls it's sequence of floor-sucking stratagems over the course one multi-part 50+ minute sound slab, much of it imbued with a perverse sense of humor that's as welcome as it is unexpected. To wit, both "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie and Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon" get unceremoniously sucked into the relentlessly spuming tidal pool of hallucinatory heat hazed and delay warped electronic splatter and deformed guitar chug/churn here, all realized with a keen sense of dynamics and a dedication to psychotropic excess thats as winning as it is exhausting.
