Two of free noise’s busiest and brightest are caught at their best on one of the more exciting collaborations to surface this year. Bill Orcutt and Chris Corsano saw fit to release the fruits of their tour of the Northeast last year, and we couldn’t be happier. Orcutt sounds closer to his Harry Pussy days here than we saw on his last few records, with an electric take on the batshit momentum found on his excellent acoustic comeback albums. Corsano adapts ecstatically to Orcutt’s style, letting his finely – Cut chops enter into a freeform freakout that leaves no room for discursive disappointment. The Raw & the Cooked has been released on fancy gatefold vinyl from Orcutt’s Palilalia Records; sample below, and buy from Mimaroglu.
