UUUU - s/t 2xLP
Label: Editions Mego
UUUU is a new outfit featuring Edvard Graham Lewis, Thighpaulsandra, Matthew Simms and Valentina Magaletti. Individually these humans have implanted feathers in caps such as Coil, Dome, Wire, Raime, etc. Collectively they form UUUU, a powerhouse construction of fierce and free sonic exploration, as liberating as it is frightening, resulting in a richly rewarding sound. The artists united present a project of exquisite curiosity and confident chaos where the individual thumbprints mesh into a gloriously muscular frenetic free sonic soup. "It's Going All Over The Floor" presents itself as a terse meeting between dance, ambient, abstraction, and improvisation. "The Latent Black Path Of Summons Served" proceeds in a tense energy field where random elements bounce around until locking into a fourth world pattern designed to fall into a dense mass of ecstatic noise. "Boots With Wings" is classic Lewis - a pop tune from the other side of the mind. UUUU is a schizophrenic seething/soothing masterpiece of a past/present hybrid, equally at home in the club, the home and the mind.
