Overview

Recorded shortly after the construction of Sonic Youth's Echo Canyon Studio in lower Manhattan, MMMR features avant-garde guitarists Loren Mazzacane Connors and Jean-Marc Montera alongside Sonic Youth guitarists (and confessed Connors fans) Lee Ranaldo and Thurston Moore. The disc features three untitled pieces, each with a slightly varied lineup (the first featuring just Connors and Montera, the second adding Moore to the lineup, the third -- and longest -- adding Ranaldo as well). Stylistically, the disc is fairly typical free guitar improv (indeed, that's the only instrument featured), with more emphasis on tone and texture than linear melody or rhythmic development. The first track, featuring just the duo, is -- somewhat obviously -- the most minimal of the three. The addition of Moore and Ranaldo on the succeeding tracks is a nicely logical one, letting the listener's ear subtly grok each of the instrumental voices. The second and third tracks are easily the best, with subtly rhythmic industrial clangs creating an idiosyncratic framework for feedback explorations.
