I was just in touch with Mutant Sounds blog founder Jim for the first time in ages regarding the new Rapidshare changes and he's asked me to pass along word that there's a reason for his extended absence from Mutant, as he's undergone dramatic surgery and has been the recuperating at length from his ordeal this last year. Here's hoping this is all behind him now and that he'll be able to contribute to Mutant again at some point in the future, but until then, feel free to offer him a small shout out and wish him a speedy recovery in the comment field.

Jaume's compositions comprise side A, Redolfi's side B, though both appear throughout. The Jaume-penned outing on side A is splendid: a rambunctious and splutteringly digestive cartoonish sound clash akin to that deployed by the Un Drame Musical Instantane/GRRR crew that pits Jaume's bass clarinet and tenor sax against playfully gurgling atmospheres from Redolfi which are then cross-hatched and perforated by the fits and spits emitted from guitarist Jean-Marc Montera, second keyboardist Jacques Diennet and vocalist Frank Royon Le Mee. Redolfi's two B-side compositions are things of confounding beauty, stepping away from his understood identity far more than the surges of Michel Waisvisz-like free synth splatter that be brings to bear on Jaume behalf on the A Side. On Naissance Et Agonie De Ma Lampe De Chevet, Redolfi sticks to a background scrim of droning coloration while Frank Royon Le Mee and Jaume use clarinets, sax, delicate acoustic guitar and and vocals of bird-like delicacy and sensitivity to evoke a ritualistic summoning on the spirits, while the title track teases a candy floss of atonal synthetic unguent around Jaume's moist emissions 'til they both explode in a polyphonically saturated and tonally ripe burst of synthetically smeared sax love.

Plangently emotional and quaveringly theatrical private press psych/hard rock/space/folk amazement that's been one of the more relentlessly booted titles over the years. The tunes here filter righteously blasted west coast acid rock moves through enough phased and heat miraged sense-expansion to trigger memories of old Eastern Block space rock units like SBB and Tako. Absolutely singular and singularly essential.

Sorry for the extra-long delay with new shares this time, but the last several weeks have been devoted almost exclusively to finishing up work on multiple Vas Deferens Organization projects that were left neglected during all the recent blog repair. These include a new VDO collaboration with Philip Sanderson of Storm Bugs, two new VDO albums that are now in post-production and our previously announced collaborations with Michael Alan, Audace and Ben Presto
Thanks for your patience. It will be rewarded with some particularly choice goodies this with this next round of posts.
