PENROSE, CHRISTOPHER - AMERICAN JINGO (CD)


"the second in Illegal Art's unique artist series, Penrose's disturbing album quickly reveals his fascination for colorful sonic alteration. as with all Illegal Art projects American Jingo begins with appropriated samples, but Penrose runs these starting points through so many processes that the sounds become abstracted while maintaining vivid traces of their original context. the title track is a epic 20 minute masterpiece that elegantly spins through countless enticing audio bits framed by the occasional borrowed narration. 'MK/Ultra' is an even longer and wilder ride as it moves from synthetic ambience to erupting feedback chronicling the assassination of JFK. packaged in digipak with american theme art done by Penrose himself."
