Melk The G6-49- Glossolalia (SAA1119)

A miniature masterpiece of thousands of amplified crickets, Glossolalia is Melk The G6-49’s finest moment. Recorded over three days, the Bloomington, Indiana bass and drum duo have composed an album that comes off sounding like a Christian Marclay-ed Melvins 12” crossfaded with a Ruins cover of Music for Airports. Hiss, trashy cymbals and 4-string bass blasts spasm and flop with no room for other sound. Melk have pursued their heavy-noise ambient methods with only John Spencer’s electric bass and Karl Hofstetter’s drums. According to Delusions of Adequacy “Melk the G6-49 makes a wall of sound so dangerously unconventional and label bending that slapping a label on this feels like going out and stomping around in an unbroken field of snow. It’s just sacrilege.”

(featuring a slick remix from hip-hop producer supreme Omid) and the brooding “Two Planes for Elliott Smith” by the Constantine/Levin/Phillips/Schlarb/Shadduck quintet.
