Label Pax Recordings - PR90272 -

Stumbling, dismantled slow motion drum beats and unusual lo-fidelity textures by the mysterious Alred T. Carmichael (aka Ability To Communicate) and And Gnat Vomit. Intense lyrics brought to you by the enigmatic poet Tina, sung and mumbled by Alfred. Gnat says this is similar to what he hoped "acid rock" would've sounded like before hearing the real thing. I just want to say (and you can quote me on that!) that it is the strangest, most disconcerting take on any kind of so-called post-rock I have heard to this day. The whisper-singing-over-tapes-slowed-down-to-a-crawl has grown into its own rock genre -- one I won't even try to label, as it would spoil some of the shocking experience that is listening to it for the first time. Although the most shocking thing about it is that once you get used to the sound of this "band", it grows on you.--Francois Couture, All Music Guide
