m v & e e Live Road (LP, £16.50)label: Blackest Rainbow
Collection of live excursions with MV & EE, all high quality recordings from shows in November 2009. The A side opens with a MV/EE duo performance of 'Mine All Troubled Blues' from Art Damage Lodge, Cincinnati, OH on 20/11/09. This heads straight into two interpretations of 'Environments', one from Project Lodge, Madison, WI which again is just raw MV/EE action, but the second features an enhanced line up with Muskox and Doc Dunn. The two versions are blurred together into one long blazing 11 minute space jam. The flip side opens with the classic blues soaked 'Tea Devil' with Erika's laid back vocals backed with MV's rippling guitar shreds, Rongoose's (Ron Schneidermann of Sunburned/Spirit of Orr/Pewt'r) heavy bass bliss outs, and Chris Corsano showcasing a slow moving stoned out drum kit. Straight from here we head into a completely trance-inducing psychedelic haze of wild jamming with a totally different version of 'Environments'. The whole of the B side was recorded with Chris and Ron at Bank Row, Greenfield, MA. Edition of 400 pressed on heavyweight vinyl with hand stamped labels in black and white pro printed wrap around jackets with cover art by Jeremy Earl of Woods/Woodsist Records.
