Collaborators/Experts Reviews

Review by Sean Trane
3 stars This NY duet's second album, released in 69, is much in the artistic continuity of their s/t debut, but there is a notable difference, with leader Simeon also adding some banjo to their soundscapes, even if the said-instrument was often played separately from the rest of the instruments.

Opening on an electronically-simulated jet-airplane take-off, Contact presents a slightly different and more varied nature than its predecessor, including some two or three tracks that feature solo or mostly the banjo, which stick out like a sore thumb. The vocals can take on a Robert Wyatt-like feel, some other soundscapes reminiscent of the early Soft Machine, but for the most part, it remains much life their debut album.

Almost as groundbreaking s its predecessor, Contact doesn't hold the same surprise, and cannot have the groundbreaking aura of ts older brother, but the more-varied soundscapes mke it somewhat more accessible

2 stars The second album of Simeon's and Danny's archaic electronic experimentations contain the similar tonal characteristics from their debut album, relying more deeply on sound effect tapes and rhythmic reciting, sounding like some sort of proto-rap music. The rustic atonal shades are quite interesting, but still staying quite powerfully on the straits of their first record. Scarce banjo licks expand the sonic palette from their first album, but as a listening experience, I cannot escape the feeling of getting slightly bored. Those digging deeply into the soil for the roots of electronicks might want to listen this one though. In my opinion song "I Have Known Love" rises from the compositions as most working variation from the monotonic themes.
