Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke, Oren Ambarchi - Tea Time for Those determined to compeltely Exhaust every bits of this Body they've been Given (2015)
They don't really have a band name but that doesn't mean this album is a one shot, actually it is the sixth one by the the trio Keiji Haino, O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi. Haino, who played in the famous Fushitsusha, is doing guitar and vocals (screaming and speaking more precisely), O'Rourke (who was in Sonic Youth for five years) is playing the bass and Ambarchi is playing drums. This album is the second half of their live set at SuperDeluxe in 2013. Overall their avant noise kraut free psych' rock reminds me a bit of Aluk Todolo, they comes from different places but meets (and excels!) int he same dark psychedelic waters. Hypnotic rythmic patterns and far out lead guitar, with a dark disturbing atmosphere. Especially the first instrumental track with it's "motorik metal" drumming reminds Aluk Todolo (and is as good). The two others tracks are even more weird and have a more pronounced "free" feel (but keeping a pusating rhythm as a backbone), with also the vocals of Haino adding tot he bizarre / tortured atmosphere. The third track goes further into minimalistic noise territory. This release is really an excellent one and makes me want to discover more music from these three artists. Highly recommended!
