metal rouge - three for malachi ritscher (album preview) by Experimedia published on 2013-03-25T20:29:31Z *Excerpts from the album. Available from Experimedia.net.* After a number of CD-R's, tapes and other underground ephemera, 'Three for Malachi Ritscher' is the first proper CD by Los Angeles free thinkers Andrew Scott and Helga Fassonaki. Through ringing passages of guitar, pedal steel, and wordless vocals, this disc climbs to thoughtless vistas of microtones and gushing feedback that inevitably implodes into vast reverberant spaces only to begin the cycle again and again. As a point of entry, the duo's craft can be seen as the joining of their love of many disparate musical forms, from the folk music of the Middle East & Asia to the underground histories of Japan & New Zealand, all mainlined through damaged delay and distortion via their own individual visions.
