Brise-Glace
When in Vanitas...

Brise-Glace: When in Vanitas... (Skin Graft)
Label: Skin Graft    
Released in: USA    


"Brise-Glace is a band with a strange pedigree, bringing a diverse, and at times startling vocabulary to play. This is Jim O'Rourke's baby, his take on a "rock band". A lot has been said about the process of building "when In Vanitas...", maybe too much, but the process is fascinating. After recording the stuff of the songs, the band is subjected to Jim's razor blade splice, which he wields virtuosically. The methodology may recall Holger Czukay or Faust, but Thymme Jones' grovin' beats and the recomposer's fondness for radio static result in something more like a bare-knuckled brawl between John Bonham and Brian Eno. Something interesting and unidentifiable is happening at nearly every moment, and the context of how these moments relate means as much as the individual moments themselves. Brise-Glace don't play it safe, deconstructing the functions of rock music, while unquestionably performing as a rock band."-Skin Graft
