Go to the Lasse Marhaug website  Lasse Marhaug - It's Not the End of the World [Quasi Pop - 2007]

It’s not the end of the world finds Lasse Marhaug slamming you with 10 relatively short, sharp and memorable noise shocks. Like an audio rollercoaster ride that twists and turns you through all kinds of noise textures and sound elements to give you one hell of an invigorating ride.

This is noise art at its top level. Instantly addictive and dense, Lasse really twists your head all over the place here. There’s are also musical elements and textures popping up here and there or sneaking their way through the rhythmic, harsh and inventive noise textures - but never lessening the impact or power. You’ll find looped electro pulse surround in buzzing insectaria wonder, as feedback hits and rips attack your ears. What sounds like amped up rain batters in neat rhythmic crispness and static crunch. Jacked-up and demented industrial beat worlds start up a foot tap dance with stuck horn elements as tuneful noise manipulation move, coming off like messed up stretched and tense reggae. Static swims and explores going against lock throbbing drone textures, before exploding into noise wonder

Another fine example of why Marhaug is one of the top three or four names in the noise genre today. Simply put: a consistent, varied and clever forty minute lesson in memorable & highly creative brutality.
