More Info

Zweites Album der hochkartig besetzten Montrealer Grupppe...geruschhaft-konkretes Material und Improvisationen, field recordings, dann wieder hochmelancholische Streicher-Gitarren-Kompositionen, die jedes Herz erweichen...

"Following the critical success of set fire to flames' 2001 album, 'sings reign rebuilder', the 13-piece Montreal-based collective return with an eagerly anticipated follow-up. Forming a double album, 'telegraphs in negative / mouths trapped in static' is a haunted, intense and highly diverse collection of material. Continuously shifting off at tangents, its slow sprawl creeps from heartbreaking guitar melodies to sparse string compositions; concrete flickerings and modified machine-crunch to tranced-out kraut-ish rhythm-pieces; cyclical minimalism to awe-filled drone-spaces; free-flowing improvised skitter and spark to raw location / life recordings. Beautifully played and composed, and far more than merely a follow-up, 'telegraphs...' sees set fire to flames pushing beyond the gains made on that previous effort and forging an increasingly autonomous space for the group..."
