Hauf / Heather / Siewert / Weber: The Peeled Eye [VINYL with Download Code] (Shameless)

Label: Shameless    
Released in: Austria    

"Describing music as "deconstructed" tends to suggest a heap of dismembered limbs-a formerly vital organism reduced to its constituent parts. But while The Peeled Eye feels deconstructed, insofar as its amplified improvisations hint at patterns but rarely cohere, its implied motion is in the opposite direction, toward increasing structure. It's as though these four musicians are applying a vast electric current to the primordial ooze of their songs, using their considerable energy to assemble an embryonic precursor of horn-fronted instrumental noise rock."-Philip Montoro, Chicago Reader
