Rutger Hauser: self-titled (AD AAD AT, 2015)July 3, 2016 at 2:33 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
More rock instruments than a typical AD AAD AT release, but it’s still noisy and cut up and chaotic and makes little conventional sense. Still, the drums and guitars snake a path through the shrapnel of intense, sloppy digital manipulations. There’s jazzy elements, and also Nurse With Wound-like surrealist editing and sound design. Sometimes there’s slivers of what sounds like polka records venting through. Some of it’s thrashy, a lot of it’s covered in static. Then there’s quiet moments with birds chirping. It’ll disorient you. It’s totally worth it.
