marcia’s zaïmph-lineage grimy phase-patterns remain intact, & margarida meets her halfway with a series of low, bowed foghorn blasts ; things generally stay in the monolithic, with the preeminent hiss of pedal-effects acting as an ostinato throughout ...

marcia bassett & margardia garcia
hand-numbered edition of 200 copies lp on manuel mota’s private headlights imprint documenting a heavyweight duo set from marcia bassett of zaimph, hototogisu, double leopards, ghq et al and improvising portuguese bassist and guitarist margardia garcia. garcia is one of the major new generation european free players, coming out of the same scene as mota, and she’s just as capable of generating swans-style industrial entropy as she is playing explosive fire music. here bassett uses keyboard and guitar to create austere arcs of industrial-strength drone that garcia anchors with tactile, questing strings, giving the whole thing an odd avant-classical backbone.
