SLIT THE MOON / WHITE OF ICE
Two drastically opposite rock eruptions - Slit The Moon speeds into the mainline to the nervous system - White Of Ice brings it back to the eternal drone - guitar excess in both directions.

Fadensonnen-WHITE EP CD
Gee, I didn't think that people (even myself) listened to WHITE LIGHT/WHITE HEAT anymore. Well, at least the first of the two numbers on this "EP CD" sounds as if the two participants (a PD and RD in case you're keeping score) had been spending the past two weeks playing one of those budget-pressed early-seventies ARCHETYPES versions of that longtime classic before sniffing up enough discarded Bic lighter fumes and recording this high-throb exercise right in the middle of the Gowanus Canal (and it sounds it!). The other track reminds me a bit of those late-eighties solo Sonny Sharrock excursions for some reason and is equally recommended especially if you, like me, looked so desperately hard for any life or excitement throughout that feelygood decade. Anyway, if you liked Fadensonnen's previous effort which I reviewed here and quite favorably at that you might like this one as well, and if life wasn't being kind enough to us all already there's even gonna be a third volume heading our way this coming summer! Can you wait? Well, at least I have something good to look forward to these upcoming months!

Whereas Fadensonnen’s first album, Grey, was named after the most well-known type of alien, White pays tribute to that most beloved paranormal phenomenon: the ghost. (Punching the cobweb-covered clock at just 25 minutes, it seems that the latter could have been included on the same disc as the 30 minute long former.) Shyly boasting just two tracks, the EP kicks off in high gear with the duo of PD and RD a-pickin’ and a-grinnin’ their way through “Slit the Moon,” whipping up a dense, sloppy electric guitar maelstrom supported by a backbone of simple, Velvety drum thwack. “White of Ice” flip-flops the mood with a much more subdued sound stage filled with spacious drones that hover like body wash mist in a dank dressing room as gently-picked melodies tease some downwardly mobile stripper’s alcohol-logged head into a stupor.
