W-2 – Fanatics


Some of that higgh quality batshit right here. 3rd record just came out from this band I’d not heard previously (and that right there is a shame, especially as they are just right down the road in NYC.) The band is W-2. Tenor saxophonist Sam Weinberg and synthesizist Chris Welcome (fr the Flying Luttenbachers!). FANATICS the new one is called and it’s out on ASTRAL SPIRITS. Electro-acoustic by nature, this is abrasive, bent, constantly moving music. The melding of such different timbres through such crumbling sounds is quite an earful to grab. Thank christ for this record! I am moved. Get on your knees. I think I heard Jesus screeching on track four. Might’ve been. I’ve grabbed this and I put it between th’ ears. Nasty AND playful. It’s as if they let Brötzmann loose on the Funspot (had’ta)!
