Toss - Titles of the Greatness of Been (2002)

Teetering on the edge of drone-drenched electroacoustic jams and full-on noise, Toss was a Belgium trio who put out two impressive albums on Kraak (or (K-RAA-K)³, if you really want to), the same fellas who brought you a Dolphins Into the Future LP this year, among other notables. Their last one, this one, Titles of the Greatness of Been, is a nervous, wandering guitar-based improvisation jammer that's just malleable enough to be deemed amorphous. Some tracks linger in heavy electronic contemplation, while others oscillate wildly with bursts of various instrumental buzzing, dubbed field recording and foamy mumbling and/or gurgling. There. Is that mailing list enough for you? Also, if I attach the word "lo-fi" to this, will you download it?
