ORDER FROM HOWLING OWL BIGCARTEL ON RIGHT COLUMN >>
Recorded live at Cafe Oto, London, 22/01/2016
"Howling Owl follow that exceptional Klein LP by capturing Sheffield’s Blood Sport in their element, kicking up a noisy, hypnotic Afro-tech fuss live at London’s Cafe Oto on 22/01/2016.
Where their Axe Laid To Root tried, and possibly failed, to capture the zing of their acclaimed, in-the-moment performances, this slab offers them up bare and unfiltered; drifting into action from a bed of background noise supplied by Fielding Hope, where they lock into driving permutations of roiling, yelping and scurrying rhythmic noise comparable as much with This Heat or My Disco as Hieroglyphic Being’s Afrocubism or the polymetric swinge of Mark Ernestus’ Ndagga Rhythm Force.
Now you don’t have to tell your mates how good they are live; just point them to this slab!"
