sample the album:
"The duo was recorded at the Viennese Garnison7 studio on January 2013. The short opening piece, "The smell on her arms", sets the album eccentric atmosphere. It features Gustafsson breathing into the baritone sax and adds percussive touches with the sax keys while Nordwall colors the piece with subtle electronics sounds. The title piece is a 19-minutes atmospheric drone that offers waves and whirlwinds of troubled, distorted sounds, The other shorter pieces continue this minimalist-psychedelic vein but with more concrete and tangible, raw breathes through the sax and touches on the guitar strings, still maintain the basic, naked vibe of the opening piece. Only the last piece, "Marks covered by wet cloth", is charged with a noisy urgency, much needed intense energy and even traces of fragmented, tortured melody."-Eyal Hareuveni, Free Jazz Blog
