sample the album:
"A collaboration between beloved experimentalist DJ/rupture and guitarist Andy Moor (of almighty Dutch post-punk outfit the Ex) is one of those grand ideas that's so soaked with such record-geek pretense it could easily end up a crispy black mess. Luckily, Moor is well indoctrinated to the ways of the Ex, a band whose mind blowing collaborations are the stuff of lore, and his work with turntablist rebel warrior DJ /rupture skirts the potential pitfall of over-indulgence. It starts out innocuously enough: DJ /rupture mostly owns throbbing dubstep number "Hot Pink Orleans," with Moor adding brittle, melodic accompaniment. It's without a wrinkle, so much so that it's hard to believe it comes from two different brains. As the record progresses, DJ /rupture slowly leaves behind dubstep, letting somber, verging on angry, guitar-centric tunes take the fore. The entrancing "The Sheep Look Up," the mostly beatless "One Hundred Month Bloom," and its sly nick of the melody from "Today," the slow, acerbic guitar build-up of "Broken Minded." Amazing, apocalyptic stuff."- Michael Byrne, Flavorwire

• Show Bio for Andy Moor
"Andy Moor [aka Andy Ex] (born 1962) began his musical life in Edinburgh, Scotland playing guitar with Dog Faced Hermans, an eclectic group that mixed post-punk energy with traditional tunes and improvisations. In 1990 he moved to the Netherlands after an invitation to join Dutch band The Ex. In 1995 he began another group, Kletka Red with Tony Buck Joe Williamson and Leonid Soybelman, fusing traditional klezmer, Greek and Russian songs with their own styles of playing.
Moor's own background is rooted in the post-punk Britain of the 1980s, but in more recent years he has collaborated with many musicians from varied backgrounds and disciplines. Many of these collaborations are duos, with amongst others Cypriot composer Yannis Kyriakides with whom he performs a set of rebetika songs (urban Greek tunes from the 1920s and 1930s), French sound poet Anne James Chaton, ex bass player from Dog Faced Hermans Colin Mclean, who now works with electronic music and live sampling, Brooklyn-based DJ, producer and writer DJ /rupture, and Lebanese Paris-based saxophonist Christine Abdelnour.
Moor has also begun composing soundtracks for films, working former Dog Faced Hermans vocalist-turned filmmaker Marion Coutts, with Iranian filmmaker Bani Khoshnoudi and US experimental filmmaker Jem Cohen. His latest projects include a quartet with Ken Vandermark, Terrie Ex and Paal Nilssen-Love called Lean Left, a trio with Berlin-based artists and musician Alva Noto and Anne James Chaton called Decade, and a trio project with Anne James Chaton and Thurston Moore called Heretics. In 2013 he began a duo project with John Butcher. Moor lives in Amsterdam at present and continues to be a full-time member of The Ex. He is a founding member of the music label Unsounds, in Amsterdam, with Yannis Kyriakides and Isabelle Vigier."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Moor_(The_Ex))
