Norman Westberg: MRI

Norman Westberg: MRI

Second Room40 release by the Swans/Foetus guitarist. The first 2 of these tracks were released on a CDr in 2012, but the last track is new. Very different than Swans or Foetus, this is textured guitar drone. Sometimes the loop pedal effects manage to create a breeze-like rhythm which carries the pieces. “410 Stairs” is the most melodic and pretty of the three tracks. “Lost Mine” is softer and feels like shuddering wind at the beginning. Not what you might expect if you’re familiar with the bands he’s been in, but it’s pretty lovely nonetheless.
