Comment: Jared C. Balogh is a man who has done very much for the sake of the weblabel/netlabel world. He has been leading an imprint, Altered State Of Mine and released a bunch of albums. So it can be said he has had very much to say even if having a focus upon his particular albums. One of them is over there being released on Kermesse, an Argentine imprint. The description of it at the release site is apprehensible – 4 tracks of layered first take improv. And it works in its roughness and raggedness, having made it on guitars, the drums and electronic/sonic effects (accelerations, manipulation with hisses). One can feel curious of what is going to happen during the next steps. The second track Sad Alert Alarm Emergency one can perceive that below those distorted guitar-based overdrives is the simplistic theme progression which reminds me of Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones. However, later tracks embrace clear-cut samples from pop songs. It is all about distortion and disruption in a straight and indirect sense. You can hear chopped and sliced rhythmic patterns, unusual sonic combinations being obviously inspired by cutting-edge jazz, dada music, Captain Beefheart's deranged soul. Get this miscellany of intriguing compositions and sounds.
