    label: Emperor Jones

    AN ENGINEER DEALING WITH FREQUENCIES THAT ARE KNOCKING OVER HIS FIVE-POUND CATHOLIC CANDLES AS HE'S RECORDING STRANGERS SHOULD HAVE THE GOOD TEMPER TO CONTROL THE EARTHQUAKE HE DIDN'T ANTICIPATE. MELBOURNE'S GREY DATURAS CAMPED OUT IN AUSTIN'S HI-FI INFINITY RECORDING FOR ONE DAY AND BORROWED CABINETS THAT NEARLY REACHED THE CEILING, COOKING UP 34 MINUTES OF DISTURBING WAVES. YOU CAN HEAR THIS TRIO FEELING EACH OTHER, AS THESE A AND B SIDES SPIN: A TRIAD WITH CLEARED HEADS AND NO PRECONCEPTIONS, SPEAKING TO EACH OTHER WITH DEMONIC WAVES, WHILE NOT ONCE LOOKING AT THE OTHERS' EYES OR HANDS NOR SAYING A WORD. NOT BAD, CONSIDERING THEY WITHSTOOD A NIGHT OF BROKEN GLASS WITH TEXAS MENTAL-CASE BANDS AT THE CLUB JUST HOURS BEFORE RECORDING.
