Wolf Eyes With John Wiese

Equinox

[3/5] A union of 21st century noise merchants Wolf Eyes and former Man Is The Bastard CEO John Wiese isn’t going to sound like any collaboration you’re used to hearing-outside the walls of a slaughterhouse, that is. The first track on Equinox (44:31) works only as a test of endurance (physical, psychic) than as any kind of documentation of interesting sounds (barring the first 17 minutes) or the creation of an engaging atmosphere. The second track (14:49) is a field recording of some people enjoying a fireworks display. Neither you nor this reviewer thought of doing it before, so, apparently it must be cool by default. How very, very clever. (TRONIKS; iheartnoise.com) Jason Pettigrew
