"calling n.y." (14:10) by Silk Saw drifts in a haze of symphonics, electric oscillations, disembodied voices, intermittent percussion all stirred into a generally slow groove (which is intruded upon by erupting chaos toward its end...). Operatic female voices open Laibach's "l'homme armé" (6:25) to be barraged with explosive orchestral manuevers... thunderous drums, assaultive brass, screaming strings, all of which crescendo then fade into nothingness... seven minutes later, an eight minute selection of various wartime field recordings (circa WWII, apparently) are presented in a streaming audio-collage of foreign voices, gunshots, crowd noise, machinery, general atmospherics and other not-so-readily-identifiable sources.
