I’ve never really liked Venetian Snares all that much, but I think his glitchy splatters fits pretty sweetly with Daniel Lanois’s stuff. They fill one another’s style out really well, imo.
I wanted to like this so much. would have loved to have seen Lanois pair up with someone who possesses a little more sensitivity to harmony, melody, and composition.
Yeah, I agree, it’s a bit off in lack of better words, like Venetian Snares is just blasting his stuff over Lanois and Lanois is trying hard to keep it together. I still quite like it though, but yeah, agreed, Lanois with the Marcia Blaine’s School for Girls crew would be amazing, if they were still around.
The results of this are… patchy. Some of it works well. Other parts it sounds like two people having a loud argument.
revisited this release today. “Mothors Pressroll P131” is quite lovely. kind of hard to believe this was all done live.
