Chippendale - Gustafsson - Pupillo - Melt
Jul 12, 2016 (updated Jul 12, 2016)

while the proposition of legendary experimentalists converging to mesh each others talents is great in promise, like most supergroup records, melt falls disappointingly short of it's potential. at its best it's a really schizophrenic record (especially in regards to the way the distortion compliments the percussion, which ends up being the backbone of the whole record), chock-full of electrifying noise rock and sheer free jazz intensity. however, the record quickly establishes that it won't expand beyond this pallet, and this reduces it to the sum of it's parts exclusively. some more expansion on melodies within the walls of noise would've made it a lot more engaging.

best tracks: faces of fear. transformed. melted. (part 1) / (part 2)
