Jakamer - Balls The Size Of Texas, Liver The Size Of Brazil
Not quite the assault that the title might suggest, but this collaboration of Norse legends Lasse Marhaug and John Hegre does continue in the slightly abrasive, yet hypnotically droning guitar both are known for. "God damn this Ugly Sound" sets a jarring tone for the record, where often the titles ("Tentacles of broken Teeth," "A Bucket of Mayo") are more violent than the tunes. No matter. Jazkamer, and the duo in their solo works, have proven they know how to shake some fillings. This more sublte drone explorations make for a soundscape that is deceptively mellow and ponderous, but still sharp as a tack. Marhaug’s guitar creates the center of the universe that drives this model, and, while not as intense or overwhelming as their previous "Panic," it is still a monster showcase for two sound artists how sure do have the balls to play whatever they want.
