Clatter For Control
\"Klang Klang\", \"Go Let\'s Go\" and \"Junk The Clatter\" are the structured, syncopated anchors for an album that ventures deep into noise and improv territory, drenched in beautiful distortions and saturations, the each player listening and responding to the other. \"Fuck This Place\" adds electric bass by Harris Newman (solo, Hrsta, Sackville) and also marks Hangedup\'s first use of vocals, with Gen screaming through her viola pick-up as the song growls through crackling punches. Quieter textural explorations like \"A Different Kind Of Function\" offer brief respite from the onslaught.
Clatter For Control consolidates Hangedup\'s relationship with Efrim (GY!BE, Silver Mt. Zion), who has recorded all of Hangedup\'s work at the Hotel2Tango with an inspired balance of raw signal strength and experimental mixing touches. His understanding of the band\'s dynamics and his ability to harness the sheer layered mass of their live shows expands with every album.
