Duy Gebord – MangrovePosted: June 16, 2014
On Mangrove, released by the Wounded Knife label, Warsaw based sound artist Duy Gebord (real name: Radosław Sirko), combines some explosive free jazz drumming with seriously amplified and fried mega-electronics a’la Supersilent at their most caustic or a less version of the frayed EAI of Hong Chulki. Remember First Date, an earlier cassette of furious no jazz by Paper Cuts, also released on Wounded Knife, I reviewed a bit ago on Weed Temple? Duy Gebord generally follows the same areas, although on Mangrove he seems to struggle with his drumming against the ocean of KevinDrummian synthesizer hiss, in an free improv session of epic proportions. Side B will put you back in a relaxed state with a distorted, noise-infused cathartic ambience with a firm lysergic backbone.
