nels cline / carlos giffoni / alan licht / lee ranaldo “nothing makes any sense” compact disc
- nothing makes any sense (53:03)
|december 2007 release; lengthy free-improv session from the guitar trio of nels cline, alan licht, and lee ranaldo; with no funís carlos giffoni on synthesizer...|
not quite the white-heat-laced shards-of-sound approach you might expect given the lineup, but rather a fairly static, drone-based piece (guitars are tuned down, bells are chimed) closer in spirit to something like maurizio bianchiís early 80s tape-work than anything else... splendid.

28 nels cline / carlos giffoni / alan licht / lee ranaldo 'nothing makes any sense' cd
a constantly shifting and engaging long-form piece of developed drone, foreboding melody, and harsh grit, nothing makes any sense finds lee ranaldo (sonic youth), nels cline (nels cline singers, wilco), and alan licht pushing their guitars into a cacophonous state that bears much influence from the post-jazz fields they've all cut their teeth in, but also bearing down a forceful brutality that has sometimes eluded their past material. while carlos giffoni uses his analog synth mastery to adequately contend and mesh seamlessly with the trio of strings, letting his analog noise pulsate and pierce with its own sense of contained stampede.
