Keiji Haino – Jim O’Rourke & Oren Ambarchi

Keiji Haino – Jim O’Rourke & Oren Ambarchi CD or 2LP ” In the past only geniusus were capable of staging the perfect crime…” Black Truffle

For its 50th release, Black Truffle presents the ninth album from one of the label’s core ensembles, the power trio of Keiji HainoJim O’Rourke, and Oren Ambarchi. Drawn from a November 2015 performance at Tokyo’s now-defunct SuperDeluxe, the record’s opening piece drops us immediately into the maelstrom, abruptly cutting into an extended episode of Ambarchi’s pummeling drums, O’Rourke’s fuzzed-out six-string bass, and Haino’s roaring guitar and electronics. Eventually settling into a hypnotic bass and drum groove over which Haino unleashes some almost Ray Russell-eque skittering atonal screech, these opening 13 minutes act as a potent reminder of the trio’s power.
