We Also Let Blood - Nothing I Gave You Was Ever Enough [Self release - 2016]

We Also Let Blood is a relatively recent addition to the US wall noise scene- the projects from Rock Island, Illinois, and it seemingly  started in 2015. So far the project has put out around six releases; which are most digital releases, and as far as I can see this C90 is  the projects first physical release.

So first up on side A we have I. This opens with a rapid, battering & bothersome bass billow, which is surrounded by thinner juddering & rattling textures.  At around the twenty five minute the whole thing seems to get more washed-out & lose  - with both key textures blurring into each other more, and a buzzing yet thin cable drone appearing with in the depths of the whole thing. By itís end the whole thing has became a lot less defined in its layer set-up.

Flipping over to side B, and we have II. And for some reason it took a minute or two for the wall to kick-in( maybe there was an error with the tape recording on my copy?!), anyway when itís does appear itís a finds slightly buzzing & fixed machine drone, mixed with a crust of thin jittering static. The whole thing has a very stark,  nasty & basic feel about it- itís certainly not going to win awards for creativity or textural invention, but as unflinchingly nasty wall-craft itís ok.  Unlike the first side there didnít seem to much movement or shift over the Ďwallsí length, and really I felt by the half-way point it felt just long enough- so it did drag in the second half.

So in summing up this is a passable release, though nothing spectacular. If you enjoy lo-fi,  nasty & simplistic wall-craft maybe check out some samples first( which you can do at the projects bandcamp), and move on from there.
