The second volume in the "Twelve Suicides" series comes from Where Is This, turning in an incredibly complex and considered tour-de-force of anxiety, anger, yearning, and depression. Where Is This takes the piece through a huge variety of tones and textures, some harsh and some unsettling, and the resultant work is a nasty slog through a bitter narrative of loss and self-loathing that leaves the listener feeling wiped out and dirty. There's nowhere to hide when the only one to blame is yourself. A masterful exploration of noise as catharsis and accusation, truly cinematic in its scope and ambition.
Packaged in a clear plastic bag in a limited edition of 15 hand-numbered copies. $7 ppd. in the United States, $20 rest of world.
