Text by Paris Transatlantic / NP :

"Due in no small part to the influence of Wolf Eyes, woodwind instruments are making significant contributions to contemporary American Noise. In the Midwest, two of its most promising acts, Wasteland Jazz Unit and the John Olson-helmed Cardboard Sax, have spat out a split LP on the Ohio-based Community College Records, home also to Being, Body Collector, Swamp Horse and Plasmic Formations. An abrasive, hermetic vision of the possibilities of the saxophone (an instrument at which John Olson is no slouch), the record's single-mindedness rewards meditative listeners.
Comprising Olson, Daniel Dlugosielski and Holly Young, Cardboard Sax’s A side contribution is their first release outside of American Tapes, and their debut on Community College. Throughout, saxophones and electronics navigate a wintry terrain devoid of structure or predictable flow. To an inattentive listener the skeletal piece might feel incomplete, maybe one-dimensional, but despite its harsh textures, it's quite atmospheric for Olson (the post-apocalyptic haze of Dead Machines, his side project with wife Tovah, also comes close). Restraint nudges feelings of dread, loss and solitude to the fore: it's frequently quite scary, with howling winds, lost whale song and whistling gales punctuated by frigid interference like a lonesome radio tower struggling for a signal in Arctic tundra. Those seeking the hypnotic industrial frenzy of Wolf Eyes are advised to look elsewhere.
Wasteland Jazz Unit, the Cincinnati-based duo of Jon Lorenz and John Rich, think more about unrelenting positive space than the heavy-quiet dynamic of the A side. Drawing from euphoric free jazz as much as discomforting noise, their 15-minute piece (both tracks are untitled, as is the LP itself) shoots up obliterating walls of feedback like sulfuric geysers between the morphing pools of amplified sax and clarinet damage. It's far more amorphous and unvaried dynamically than the A side. Vaguely abusive, dense and all-consuming, good luck clearing your head long enough to figure out why you like it so much."
