Dead Machines

Bleep bizzzzzzzzz whirrrr whip howl crack cackle wizzz wizzzz wizzzz whir click click click screeeeech buzz clonk screech buzz cronk fuzzzzz reaareerrreeerrreeerrreeerrreeerrr!! Welcome to the world of John Olson. It's a strange, muddled world where man speaks through various altered pieces of musical equipment. On the Dead Machines project, Olson is joined by his wife, Tovah O'Rourke of the periodically stunning Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice. The project involves a sort of electronic conversation between the two musicians, similar to CDRs put out by Wolf Eyes. Futures, the band's Troubleman Unlimited debut, is no different than other recordings that I have heard from the band (which, according to the complete discography included in the package, is approximately 1/16th). That said, people who are into the prototypical Olson jam-noise project should seek this out.
