Stefan Neville
Do Not Destroy…
(Last Visible Dog, 2006)

A hodge-podge Kiwi noise collage (rhyme!) that is as beautiful (to these ears) as it is atonal. Stefan Neville (of Pumice fame) seems the only possible candidate for creating such a gloriously ramshackled mess. I still don’t understand how Neville manages his unique sound, but his singular sonic imprint is all over this record. Still, when compared to his output as Pumice, Do Not Destroy… is more manic and jittery and generally insane, which is always a good thing.
