2 tracks, 22 minutes. Stunning session from the alchemical folkist.
Kranky (who have released many of Boduf Song's records) describe Mat Sweet as possessing alchemical powers based on his ability to take various musical instruments and transform their sound to create something deeply original, something that is not simply 'singer-songwriter' or 'folk'. It is the sonic detail enriching every song that is most striking about Sweet's music.
This session comprises two outstanding tracks, the first one 'Please Extract My Teeth With Your Rustiest Pliers (For Redemptive)' sounds like it could have been used as the soundtrack to a 1970's horror film, with timely splashing cymbals, scratchy guitar sounds and deep thunderous drones. The second track 'That Angel Was Fucking Piss' is quintessential Boduf, with brooding vocals, the crisp plucking of the acoustic guitar and every detail of every chord transition captured. Both songs are rich in timbre, creating an intense atmosphere for the listener to be well and truly absorbed.
