This collaboration with guitarist Terrie Ex, of the Dutch avant-rock band The Ex, was recorded in 2009. Ex and Nilssen-Love are also half of Lean Left, with Vandermark and guitarist Andy Moor (also of The Ex). The self-taught Ex has a unique experimental approach to the guitar, totally unpredictable, highly inventive and always adventurous. The four free-flowing improvisations differ in temperament, though all enjoy an intense, uncompromising and powerful interplay.
The opening "Harar" is a raw and chaotic collision of noisy, scorching guitar sounds and energetic, fractured rhythms. Ex and Nilssen-Love explore all aspects of creating sounds from their instruments, through a relentless flow of ideas. "St. George" begins with disturbing metallic textures, slowly morphed into more recognizable patterns when Nilssen-Love's rolling drumming set a different course. "Bedele" and "Meta" focus on exploring abstract sonic textures. Noisy, hurried sounds float around, vibrate, clash, explode and evaporate or blend quickly into new raw sounds, without diminishing the high level of tension and creativity. - Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz
