O'Rourke, Jim / Lasse Marhaug / Paal Nilssen-Love: The Love Robots [VINYL] (PNL/PICA)
Label: PNL/PICA    
Released in: Norway    

"The most interesting of their latest collaborations is the one with guitarist Jim O'Rourke, who contributes classic Sonic Youth guitar noise to the duo's [Paal Nilssen-Love & Lass Marhaug] excesses. At the start, Nilssen-Love is a very economical: his usual velocity is reluctant, almost coy. The three musicians blend excellently with each other, Marhaug's electronics and O'Rourke's guitar effects are a perfect match - a combination of early Pink-Floyd-psychedelia and new music in the tradition of Stockhausen and Mario Bertoncini. Side A end with a magical moment that could go on forever. The flipside is rawer and more disruptive, Marhaug's evil static is a constant presence: the disagreeable and disturbing side of noise [...]"-Martin Schray, The Free Jazz Collective
