"Neocortical F-Bars (recorded with Alberto Novello) has the distinction of having been released as a CD in 2020 on Lpez hard-to-find sister label Nowhere Worldwide (typically distributed through Norman Records). A much different animal, this release pops and pings like injured playback devices from the last century. Midway through Lpez side, a tempo develops, eventually lifting the piece from abstraction to form before a final reduction to static. Novello substitutes fizzes and whorls, occasionally slipping into silence while preparing the next movement. The tone is as cold and septic as its cover, ending in Geiger fuzz." [A Closer Listen]
